Don't know because OWU has not posted their 2020 roster yet, however I think this is a pretty good pick up for them. Class of 2019, CRAIG ROCH, here is his report from PBR.

It was a rough opening weekend for the NCAC - Allegheny went 1-3 against John Carroll and DePauw went 0-4 against Emory and Oglethorpe.  Everyone else except Oberlin opens their season later this week.

Interesting pre-season coaches poll, Denison receiving 95 votes and Wooster received 94 votes.  As pointed out by Drew Pasteur on Twitter, this means that one of the coaches voted Wooster 3rd.  I would be very interested to find out if the coach actually thought 2 teams are better than Wooster this year or if the ranking was for a different reason.

Wabash went 2-1 in their opening weekend; beating #8 Heidelberg 15-1 with six run innings in the 7th and 9th, beating UW-SP 5-4, before losing to Baldwin Wallace in a 6-0 shutout.

Next week in Arizona for the Little Giants.

Coaching HS travel ball the last few years now I've gotten a little more back in tune with HS ball.  I certainly don't follow recruiting daily, but I can tell you that Deegan is roping in some really good talent right now.  He's really building something at Denison.

Also, I have to say that Brua is doing a good job at Hiram with recruiting.  I'm not saying they're going to be battling the big boys, but he is grinding.  He's getting kids from high level travel programs.  Never a sure sign of talent, but it's a safer bet and more importantly he's getting in the door for future kids from those programs.

Fingers crossed we're talking about games in the spring!

Thanks Dr,
That Deegan is doing well is no surprise. He recruited my son, when he was an assistant at Marietta. He was very effective. One of the reason son did not end up there, is he felt Deegan was more interested, than the head Coach.
It is good to see that Denison, finally got there guy. I am happy to see him doing well.
I am hoping spring Baseball comes back. I still like ttraveling to Littick to watch games.

Don't worry BLD, a certain level of disinterest in recruiting seems to be a Brewer trademark.  I remember hearing that same feedback way back when he was the HC at JCU.

I can tell you the only HC's I've seen at summer tournaments recruiting in central OH are Mott, Fitzgerald and Stechschulte.  Now I've seen a slew of assistants from nearly every school in that time, but those are the only HC's.  That doesn't mean as much as years past given how many travel teams and tournaments exist now.  The HC's could just be at different tourneys since there seems to be 4 going on every weekend in central OH.  Plus geographically Woo, Oberlin, Hiram, BW, JCU, Mount, etc. would be more likely to be recruiting in NE Ohio.

Glad to hear reports that Hiram may be getting stronger in the next few years.  Anytime a team that is usually at the bottom of the league standings gets better, the entire league gets benefits.  Better strength of schedule ratings for everyone and teams may be less likely to save their pitching for another opponent.
