Jarrett Anderson has been absolutely killing it on the recruiting trail.
TCU had an inside track to Bolticoff. One of his high school coaches is former Frogs lineman and Rose Hill native Blaize Foltz, who started every game at right guard his final two seasons at TCU in 2011-12.
Bolticoff is ranked as the No. 36 offensive guard prospect in the nation, according to 247Sports composite rankings. He is the sixth player to commit to the Frogs for 2021, joining Jackson, quarterbacks Alexander Honig and Trent Battle, wide receiver Chase Jackson and defensive end Chris Murray.
TCU’s 2021 class is currently ranked 78th in the country and 10th in the Big 12, per 247Sports.
The Magician. I like it.
Sure, there is the Green Goblin (Jalen Mills), Ginger Jesus (Carson Wentz), and White Snake (Nathan Gerry). Plus Strap (Cre’Von LeBlanc), Jaccpot (DeSean Jackson), Gravedigger (Javon Hargrave), and Big Play (Darius Slay). Now the Eagles can add a new one to the list: Jalen Reagor has been dubbed “The Magician.”
The rookie receiver from Texas Christian was given the moniker by six-time Pro Bowler Chad Johnson earlier this week. The former Bengals star didn’t explain why but it seems to do with Reagor’s insane ability to make people miss in space … wave the magic wand and poof!
Well, $1.5 million probably makes that like a definitely. But life-changing money? Not in this economy! (and don’t even get me started on using phenomenal in the same sentence as Orioles lol).
Though no deal has been announced, he has reportedly agreed to a $1.5 million bonus, which is more than $1 million above the slot value at the No. 133 pick ($422,300). Baltimore was able to fit Baumler into its draft pool (nearly $13.9 million) because No. 2 overall pick Heston Kjerstad is expected to sign an under-slot deal.
“If it was going to work out and I was going to play professional baseball, it had to be life-changing money and it had to be phenomenal farm system,” Baumler said on Glenn Clark Radio June 16. “The culture of the Orioles … that played a huge part into it, and they kind of met me where I was at. I think things are going to work out.”
Baltimore was one of the teams that showed interest before the draft, going as far as sending area scout Scott Thomas to visit Baumler at the pitcher’s home in Iowa. Thomas visited in January, and that was the moment when Baumler realized the Orioles were a real possibility.
Same social event... SMH.
The school currently has 36 active cases of coronavirus, including six with direct on-campus impact and 30 with indirect impact. Direct impact is characterized as an individual being on TCU’s campus within two days of symptom onset or receiving a positive test.
Of the six direct impact cases, three are students, two are contractors and one is an employee. Of the 30 indirect cases, 29 are students and one is an employee. An email TCU sent shared on social media by a professor said most of the students who contracted the virus did so at the same social event.
