After winning the 2007 Pac-10 championship and advancing to the College World Series for the 20th time in school history, Arizona State University baseball is preparing for another run to Omaha in 2008. With the 2008 roster stocked with graduating seniors and draft eligible players expected to be taken in the 2008 MLB Draft, 14th year head coach Pat Murphy has announced his recruiting class for the 2009 season. The 24-man class is expected to pay immediate dividends and keep ASU among the top collegiate baseball programs in the country for years to come.

"I'm excited about this group of future Sun Devils and confident that this is one of the best recruiting classes ever assembled here at ASU," said coach Murphy. "This class is a very deep and talented group of players and will be the foundation of our program in the years to come. Because we will lose so many of our current student-athletes in next spring's draft, we need a group capable of making an immediate contribution and this recruiting class will certainly serve that need."

"Recruiting coordinator Josh Holliday and assistant coach Andy Stankiewicz did an excellent job identifying a group of players that will continue to represent the proud winning tradition of Sun Devil Baseball. I'm excited about the contributions they will make on the field and in the classroom and very proud to announce this recruiting class."
