Sources closes to the university have confirmed that all four of the highly touted incoming players for the USC baseball team are now at Carolina in their dorm rooms, and are looking forward to starting classes on Thursday. Once they begin classes, all negotiations with the Major League Baseball teams that drafted them are over.
The USC coaching staff has kept a low profile for the players, not wanting to have a repeat of what happened with Gavin Floyd of the Phillies a few years back, who signed a pro contract the night before classes started. The coaching staff met with each player in their homes prior to their coming to Carolina, and were assured that each one of them fully intends to be a Gamecock.
Right-handed pitchers Sam Dyson (Tampa, Fla.), Nick Fuller (Marietta, Ga.) and Jay Brown (Young Harris JC) and infielder Lonnie Chisenhall (Morehead City, N.C.) were all selected within the top 19 rounds of the June Draft.
