As teams around the nation enter fall practices, thoughts about the 2010 season are starting to pick up.
Kendall Rogers of Yahoo Sports and Rivals.com has thrown out a preliminary top 30 if you will for 2010, listing as he states "our 30 teams to watch."
In no particular order the Buckeyes are included.
Rogers says of the Buckeyes...
The Buckeyes took a step forward last season by reaching the Tallahassee Regional final, but they enter fall workouts with higher aspirations. Ohio State is a northern team that has the ability to get to Omaha. The Buckeyes welcome back a plethora of talented hitters, including Dan Burkhart, Ryan Dew, Zach Hurley, Michael Stephens and Cory Kovanda. On the mound, they lost stud reliever Jake Hale to the MLB draft this summer, but welcome back ace pitcher Alex Wimmers, who has a 3.27 ERA in 104 2/3 innings last season. They also return Drew Rucinski and Eric Best.
Omaha potential eh? I like.
