2007 Big East Pre-season Poll and Teams

The Big East Conference released the Pre-Season poll in which St. John’s was given 7 out of the possible 11 first place votes. The University of Notre Dame received four votes with the Cardinals of Louisville getting the other vote. Notre Dame sophomore Kyle Wieland was picked as the Pre-Season Pitcher of the year and Rutgers junior Todd Frazier was the Pre-Season Player of the year. The full release is available here.

I think you should not sleep on USF and Duke transfer Danny Otero as they are my team to watch in the Big East.

USF=Omaha Bound??

University of South Florida picked up four recruits for the 2007-2008 season. The four recruits are Kevin Quackenbush, Jonathan Koscso, Chris Jones and Todd Brazeal. Each of these prospective student-athletes were recruited heavy by some of the power players in the South. Quackenbush was recruited by FSU, Florida, Miami, Vanderbilt and Wake Forest. Jonathan Kosco has the Wahoos of Virginia, Army, Navy and Davidson giving him some looks. Chris Jones, a lefty from Gaither’s had offers from Florida, Clemson, Alabama, Auburn and Georgia. Todd Brazeal was getting looked at LSU, Clemson, and South Carolina but chose the Bulls over them.

These are four big recruits for new head coach Lelo Prado who is grabbing recruits away from the Big schools in the South like FSU and Miami. This should bode well for the USF Bulls chances of winning the Big East and getting a bid to the NCAA Tournament also.

USF also released their schedule for the 2007 season. Click here for the schedule.
