The University of Miami hasn’t reached the College World Series in four seasons.

The 2012 Hurricanes have a very legitimate shot to get to Omaha for the 24th time in program history. But should that not happen in the upcoming season, the recruiting class the ‘Canes put together this winter could be the push that’s needed in ’13 and beyond.

As usually is the case, the Hurricanes assembled an outstanding recruiting class with coordinator and assistant coach J.D. Arteaga leading the way.

The Hurricanes signed 19 players in this recruiting class. And unlike many teams ranked near the top of our 2012 recruiting rankings, the ‘Canes – which have the No. 2 class – don’t have an overly balanced group.

For instance, the ‘Canes signed just five full-time pitchers and inked a whopping 14 position players.

“The recruitment of position players was something we thought we really needed to work on hard with this class. We need to improve in this area,” Arteaga said. “We’re probably going to lose quite a bit from a position player standpoint after next season. And with it being a special year for position players in South Florida, we thought the time was right.”
