Texas Baseball officially welcomed ten new recruits to the program on Wednesday, solidifying its 2021 recruiting class.  Head coach David Pierce and his staff took full advantage of in-state talent, securing National Letters of Intent from eight players from the state of Texas.  They also signed one out-of-state player (Alabama) and a junior college transfer.

The class is pitching-heavy, which fits Pierce’s philosophy on roster management.

“I learned a long time ago that when you think you have enough pitching, recruit more. That’s exactly what our staff did,” Pierce said. “Sean and Philip did an outstanding job of finding seven arms that prepare well and compete. All of these young men have great character and work ethic. They will arrive on the Forty Acres ready to contribute to the future success of Texas Baseball.”

Seven of the ten signees are pitchers.

Texas also signed an infielder and two outfield players.
