Picked up a major verbal for 2013 in LHP Chris Kohler
Chris Kohler LHP Los Osos HS, Rancho Cucamonga, Calif. Ht.: 6-3. Wt.: 195. B/T: L/L. Kohler is a long, loose lefthander with a great feel for his stuff. He comfortably throws his fastball in the upper 80s and can slide into the low 90s on occasion. His curveball works as his out pitch and he also uses his changeup off of his fastball. He throws all of his offerings for strikes in any count.
Was committed to S.Carolina WAY WAY back but committed to USC a year ago but stuff going on with their program so he visited out here for FAMU
I really enjoyed watching them last year and think they'll be in great shape to make a run in '13. Hope they get more support from fans.
The Collegiate Baseball Newspaper's Pre-Season Poll has been released, and the Sooners enter 2013 ranked No. 14 in the nation. #Oklahomaha
Sucks that Lockwood transferred.
Well that's a damn shame. Sounds like he wants to focus on playing catcher.
The University of Oklahoma baseball team's junior left-handed pitcher Dillon Overton and junior right-handed pitcher Jonathan Gray have been named to the 2013 Louisville Slugger Pre-Season All-America Second Team,as selected by CollegiateBaseball Newspaper.

Overton earned All-Big 12 Honorable Mention honors in 2012 after rankingsecond in the Big 12 in both strikeouts (126) and innings pitched. He went 6-3 with a 3.15 ERA over 22 appearances, including 16 starts. The Weatherford, Okla., native owns a career recordof 14-7 and a career ERA of 2.83, fanning 185 over 45 appearances and 197.0 innings pitched. He garnered First Team Freshman All-America honors from Collegiate Baseball Newspaper after going 8-4 with a 2.30 ERA and 59 strikeouts in 2011.
Gray went 8-4 with a 3.16 ERA and 104 strikeouts over 18 starts and 102.2 innings pitched in his first season with the Sooners after transferring to Oklahoma from Eastern Oklahoma State. A native of Chandler, Okla., Gray's eight pitching victories tied for sixth-most in the Big 12.
**** man I'm ready for some OU baseball. Any idea if the games will be on the new network or online?
and we're going back to Louisville bats
The University of Oklahoma is one of the most storied programs in college baseball history, boasting two national championships, 10 College World Series appearances, 35 NCAA Tournament bids and 22 conference championships.
Now, after several years with another company, Oklahoma has signed a five-year agreement to swing BBCOR bats from Louisville Slugger, baseball's leading bat maker and the Number One Bat in Major League Baseball®.
"As we enter the 2013 season, we are extremely excited to be in partnership with Louisville Slugger," said OU Head Baseball Coach Sunny Golloway. "We had a lot of options; we chose Louisville Slugger."
The Sooners are expected to be an outstanding team once again in 2013. The University of Oklahoma baseball team enters the 2013 campaign ranked 14th in the nation, according to Collegiate Baseball Newspaper's Fabulous 40 Pre-Season Poll. The Sooners have their sights set on returning to Omaha. When they do, they'll be hitting line drives and home runs with the latest in bat innovation and technology; Louisville Slugger's two-piece composite ATTACK, the hybrid EXOGRID3 and the ST+20 alloy OMAHA BALANCED.
