LAFAYETTE, La. – The Louisiana Ragin' Cajuns baseball team had its 2016 class rated No. 51 by Perfect Game in the latest national recruiting class rankings, the publication announced on Monday. The ranking is the highest in the Sun Belt with Texas State second at No. 56.

"Coach (Anthony) Babineaux and coach (Jeremy) Talbot do a great job along with coach (Daniel) Freeman who is with the recruits when they are on campus. This is a big feather in their cap and this is important for the continued growth of our program. We appreciate that Perfect Game respects the guys that we have coming in."

The class is also the second rated class in the state of Louisiana with LSU leading the way at No. 28 and Tulane in third at No. 73. The class ranking is also the highest in the last five years for the Cajuns.
