Vitello said in his introductory press conference that they had a guy on campus for a visit that he recruited at TCU so it could be yet another commitment.  Bonfield is a huge pickup as he is a stud, but it could very well be the recruit visiting.

You could look at the recruiting threads on this forum and find that info out.  I try and keep that as up to date as possible.

I thought I heard Mike say that the commitment was a player being recruited at TCU, before the coaching hire here.

Arkansas baseball picked up a commitment from New Jersey outfielder Luke Bonfield on Monday. He is part of the 2014 class.

I don't see how Bonfield would be on campus right now considering that he is playing in the Perfect Game tournament.  Could be wrong, but I have to think its another guy thats on campus that may have committed today.

Anybody have any info on who was on campus today?  Really wish baseball recruiting was reported on more.

Fans could help out if we just had half as much info as we do about football or basketball recruits

Mark Clark
Could even be someone else.  Vitello said there was someone on campus that he had been recruiting at TCU.  Good to see a Fort Smith kid get to live out his dream.

⚾Mark Clark⚾ ‏@Mark5Clark  6h 
Finally my dream has came true! I have officially committed to be a Arkansas baseball player! #WPS

Don't think we have to worry about losing him to the draft even if he has 1st round potential.  Really look forward to him be a Hog.

Clark has ridiculous power for his build. Usually the tall lanky kids develop power down the road.  I'm anxious to see what happens as he gets stronger.  Great pickup.

What else do you know about him?  Is he a corner OF or can he stick in CF at the next level?

Corner OF would be my best guess.  He could also play 1st and he catches in high school.  Don't think he projects as a catcher, though. I watched him play 3 times this year and he hit 4 HRs in those 3 games.  It's hard to judge kids off high school when the pitchers are nowhere near what they wll see in summer ball and then in college.  Still, Clark has very quick hands and the body type that projects well as he gets older.

Thanks for the info.  4 HRs in 3 games is very impressive unless they were played at Farmington.  If he measurements on the PG website are true, he has the body type that does project well like a Ficociello or Anderson.

Let's see, Vitello has been on the job for about 3 days now and has landed 3 players.  Would say we made the right hire.

Not really surprised.  Knew DVH would bring in a stud recruiter to replace Butler.  Really excited to see the rest of the class shape up.

It's kind of funny to look at the 2014 recruiting classes among the Big 3 sports and the reactions of posters.

I'd say he landed one player.

You are correct. I saw a game that had SEVEN homeruns hit on that field a few years ago. Farmington no longer plays on the "Tee Ball" field. So those homerun derby games are over.
