Offers: Kennesaw St.
Sansing: “Alex is an exciting piece to the 2018 Recruiting Class.  The way he plays the game and approaches his business will remind many Owl fans of former Owl center fielder, Bo Way, who is now in Triple A with the Los Angeles Angels.  His competitiveness and ability make Alex one of the top Junior College players in the country and we are excited and blessed he chose KSU to continue his education and baseball career.”

Garrison Hurd | 5’10” | 205 | OF | L/R|  South GA St. College / Glynn Academy

Brendan Bickleman | 6’2″ | 180 | RHP | Bob Jones HS (Madison, AL)
Fowler Recruit


Offers: Kennesaw St., Jacksonville St., Calhoun CC
Perfect Game
Sansing: “Brendan is a player who is very talented already possessing a FB in the low 90’s to go along with a wipeout slider.  Given his athleticism, work ethic, and room to still grow, it may be his tremendous upside that excites our staff most. Like the rest of this class, Brendan is a super young man who has a history of excelling just as much in the classroom and community as on the field .”

Bowen Bock | 6’4″ | 185 | RHP | West Forsyth HS (Cumming, GA)
Fowler Recruit


Offers: Kennesaw St. (others unknown)
Perfect Game
Sansing: “”Bowen is another arm in this year’s class with a tremendously high ceiling.  He has the capability of one day being a frontline starter for us.  His FB already reaches 90 MPH but we truly believe that is just the tip of the iceberg for him.  Combine his baseball ability with his academic achievement and he is another perfect fit for our program.”

Logan Fink | 6’3″ | 200 | 1B | R/R| Tattnall Square Acad. (Macon, GA)

Sansing: “Logan is another player that brings that unique combination of power and speed to this year’s Recruiting Class. It isn’t very often you see a player of his size that also is as athletic and possesses as much power.  As seems to be the theme with this year’s class, Logan also really excels in the classroom sporting a 4.0 GPA as well.”

Highlights 2
Sansing: “Jared is a player that first opened our Coaching staffs’ eyes the Summer after his sophomore year in High School and then again at our Prospect Camp last January.  His present stuff is special with a FB in the low 90’s to complement 2 very advanced secondary pitches, but it may be his command that sets him apart most from pitchers his age.”
