The Frogs sit at 6-1, and are still atop the college rankings, followed closely by Florida, Florida State, and LSU.
TCU maintained its grip upon the No. 1 spot in the D1Baseball Top 25 rankings by winning a home series against Arizona State. Florida remained No. 2 after sweeping rival Miami, and Florida State stayed at No. 3 after a 3-1 week.
TCU squares off against Rice, LSU, Texas A&M, Ole Miss, DBU, UC-Irvine, and Long Beach State in the next two weeks. All of those teams are in the RPI Top 100. Schloss is looking forward to the challenge.
“This is a good stretch for us,” TCU coach Jim Schlossnagle said. “It’ll prepare us for conference play. If we can have some success against it, maybe it’ll help us at the end of the season, too.”
LSU sits at No. 2, No. 3, or No. 4 in the most recent rankings, depending on which one you consult, making the game on Friday that much bigger.
LSU moved up one spot in the D1Baseball.com rankings to No. 4, switching places with South Carolina (5-3).
In the Collegiate Baseball poll, LSU dropped one spot to No. 3, switching places with Florida (6-1).
In the other two polls, Perfect Game kept the Tigers at No. 2 and Baseball America at No. 4.
TCU’s final home game comes Wednesday night, as the Wildcats come to town. A win keeps the Frogs’ slim NCAA Tournament hopes alive. Seeding in the Big 12 Tournament is also at stake.
It’s a pivotal game in the Big 12 Conference as both teams are in sixth place in the league and fighting for the first-round bye in the Big 12 Tournament. The bottom four teams are the No. 7-10 seeds and play on March 8. The quarterfinals begin on March 9.
The four-star defensive back narrowed his choices down to TCU, Baylor, and Texas. He’s planning on making his announcement in the very near future. Scout National Analyst Greg Powers has this to say about Vongor’s game.
“Vongor is a hitter who can separate the ball from the receiver or ball-carrier. He's played both sides of the ball during his high school career, but projects best as a safety to the high-major level, because his highlight tape really comes alive on the defensive side where his pursuit angle to the football and closing speed show exactly what type of prospect he will be on the next level."
