    Has the baseball project come anywhere close to its final fundraising goal?

    No idea but this program is definitely moving in the right direction.

    From what I hear, no, nowhere near the needed funding. Skip probably will have to win first before the funds grow.

    Can you tell us more about this kid ? Pitcher? Guys I've talked to in Tulsa were very surprised Skip signed him. Maybe he's coming in as a position player ?

    I hear he plays 2nd, has zero range and might be BA's 3rd best pitcher...Im also being told that his dad is good friends with Clay Overcash and that OU was not interested until he was hired. I just hope Skip does his due diligence on the rest of his players better than what he did here with this one.. The kid has been injury prone so that might be the reason the Tulsa guys aren't real high on him, maybe there is upside that OU sees..Whatever is best for the Sooners is what I want.. Boomer

    I haven't seen him with my own eyes but he is rated the 10th best prospect in the state for the 2018 class.. Higher than any other BA player..

    That's good to know, must be a good player.. They did say he "quit" his high school team just a year ago in the middle of a tournament, his dad was a lay coach and "both took their toys and went home". Must have got that all worked out. I'll have to watch for him this Spring.

    That offsite basketball arena seems like it may be where beer sales start since it won't be officially part of campus. I imagine baseball might also be a good place to "give it a try" so we will just have to wait and see. I think it's definitely a greater possibility with the change coming.

    As far as second guessing recruiting. I don't remember anyone really pissing and moaning about individual players in any of Pete's recruiting classes. Skip is an exceptional recruiter and I highly doubt he would let one of his assistant coaches make a move on a kid if he didn't see real potential. The kid and his parents will fall in line or hit the bricks. Skip doesn't appear to **** around so we will see how this pans out.

    If the kid and his dad are what you say they are. He will jump at any kind of draft spot just because they can. It happens all the time and we won't have to mess with either.
