The 2022 recruiting class is very bright one for one of the longtime blue bloods of college baseball, Miami. It’s loaded with upside on both sides of the ball and is especially deep on position player talent. There are certainly several players in this class that can make an impact on the field right away if they make it to campus.

Out of their top five recruits, only Nazier Mule will provide pitching value and Mule is a two-way player that profiles even higher on the offensive side of the ball to most, even with his triple digit fastball. The No. 2 player in the class, Elijah Green, is the obvious crown jewel of this class with true five-tool potential. The Hurricanes also have one of the premium power bats in the class in Kaden Martin, who has explosive bat speed and power that has shown up in game action.

Even though the upper part of their list if filled with position players, there’s no shortage of arms in the class. The top-rated arm for the loaded ‘Canes class is Ashton Crowther, who is a tall and projectable southpaw who has been up to 93 mph at Perfect Game events and creates a tough angle for hitters with his low three-quarters arm slot. Joining Crowther will be 6-foot-5 right-hander Sebastian Perez, who can run it up to the mid-90s with the fastball and a changeup that has late action and often slips under opposing bats. A couple of other notable arms headed to Coral Gables in this class are Gunther Braendel and Cole Derks, who both rank in the top-500 in Perfect Game’s rankings.

Head Coach Gino DiMare and Recruiting Coordinator Norberto Lopez did a good job of keeping a lot of home-grown talent in the state, with 14 players in Miami’s 2022 recruiting class coming from the state of Florida. With the caliber of talent in this class, especially Green and Mule, there is significant risk of losing some players to the MLB Draft, but this is a class that is filled with athleticism and high-upside players and could be a solid core for this program in the years to come.
