Hunter Combs and Joe Wilkinson apparently also transferring. With current seniors getting to return next year plus the addition of next years freshman. Gonna make for interesting rosters. NCAA will have to expand rosters.

Four senior baseball players are coming back to take advantage of the extra year of eligibility created by COVID-19:  Grant Macciocchi, Jeremy Houston, Braden Scott, and Collin Hopkins.  A decision from Jordan Fucci is expected later in the summer.

Others include Cal Krueger (leaving), Grant Sloan, and maybe Manous because he's a RS JR. 

Getting Manous and Fucci would be huge. 

Whered you see this?

A College World Series in mid-July. An NCAA tournament beginning in early July. A college baseball season beginning the third weekend of March.  Those are all things that will happen beginning with the 2022 season if a set of recommendations assembled by a five-coach panel of Power Five coaches gets approval from other Division I coaches and passes at the highest levels of the NCAA in the coming months.  Full story at link below

Does that mean you could give every player a scholarship this year?  Or title IX still strict that?
