We are right in the thick of football season but it's never to early to talk college baseball.  For the LSU Tigers, they got a good grade yesterday when it comes to recruiting players.

LSU was ranked #5 in recruiting in the country when it comes to filling their roster of talented baseball players from across the nation.

The 2017 Collegiate Baseball magazine ranks the Tigers #5 which is a big honor plus this is the 10th time in 11 years that LSU is in the Top 10 of the survey.

Vanderbilt took the top spot followed by Florida at #2, South Carolina at #3 and Arizona State at #4.

The LSU Baseball team will start the 2018 season at home in Baton Rouge on Friday February 16th when they take on Notre Dame at Alex Box Stadium.
