Coach Hall and the Yellow Jackets find themselves back in the Top 10 recruiting classes in the nation for 2024, bringing in over 20 high level names including two in the Top 60. This class, much like the years before, has a solid in-state foundation with talent being resourced from other regions as well. Expect many of the names talked about below to provide an instant impact for the Jackets come next Fall. 

It’s hard not to start the conversation here with Drew Rogers, the #27 ranked prospect in the nation and PG All-American. Rogers is a true multi-talent in terms of the sheer offensive/defensive combo value the 6-foot, 215 pound righty provides. Starting behind the dish, the actions for Rogers are near second nature, repeating a fluid compact arm stroke with effortless throws that have been recorded upwards of 85 mph. He has tons of bounce and coordination to the footwork, pinpointing throws on the bag at a 1.79 pop time flashing a direct repeatable transfer. Offensively, expect nothing less than major pullside pop, displaying easy strength in the hands with leverage created. He’s posted an exit velo of 107 mph in game and is a dangerous offensive piece to say the least. Other top position players joining Rogers in the class include a trio of GA bred prospects: Connor Shouse, Bo Walker, and Alex Hernandez. Keying in on the #54 ranked Shouse, he might be a primary SS on paper but the kid can really play anywhere, including pitch thanks to his athletic versatility. With an absolute cannon attached to his arm, Shouse has been up to 95 on the bump, 97 across the infield, and 99 from the OF. The 6-foot-1, 180 pound star can hit for both average and power offensively, posting a .427 BA with seven HR’s in 2023. 

In terms of arms, Thorpe Musci leads a strong list of names for the future Yellow Jackets. The 6-foot, 190 pound righty likes to attack in the zone with a low to mid 90’s FB that gets on the hands quick. He’s one of the more consistent and reliable arms you’ll find across the nation, displaying advanced command of a FB/CB/CH arsenal that can be manipulated and worked into multiple counts/situations. There’s heavy sink present on the heat that creates lots of weak jammed swings. Musci flashes deception to the delivery and hides the ball well, making it that much harder for hitters to pick up out of the hand if it wasn’t hard enough already. Joining him will be New York’s own Sebastian Lippman, a projectable 6-foot-3, 180 pound righty with big time swing and miss stuff. Usually living around 90-91 mph, Lippman has electric arm speed with tons of physical upside. He’s been up to 95 mph as recently as August 2023, a number that could very well become the standard once he hits campus. There’s evident spin profile in the arsenal and overall is an arm that is only going to continue trending up. 

Once again, Coach Hall has built a class that can compete with anyone in the nation, something we should just be used to at this point as the legendary HC heads into year 30 in Atlanta. The names listed above are just the tip of the iceberg when considering the depth here. Time to get excited if you’re a Tech fan.
