MADISON, S.D. – The Dakota State University Baseball program has compiled one of its largest recruiting classes ever to date.  Twenty-nine athletes hailing from 19 different states and 2 countries will make up the next group of Trojans in making Madison their next home.

This year's class breakdown included 7 junior college transfers and 22 high school seniors.  The 19 states and 2 countries that are represented in this year's Trojan recruiting class include:  South Dakota, North Dakota, Minnesota, Nebraska, Iowa, Kansas, Wisconsin, Wyoming, Montana, Colorado, Texas, California, Oregon, New Mexico, Alabama, Florida, Rhode Island, Mississippi, Canada (Manitoba and Ontario) and Australia (Melbourne).

"We utilize all the newest technology, to include social media and other methods to communicate with and evaluate our prospective student-athletes," said assistant coach and recruiting coordinator Brady Banse.  "We also incorporated many old school approaches in terms of building relationships with high school coaches, parents and other constituents to get to know these prospects."

"We conducted extensive academic evaluations, as well as athletic evaluations, on our prospective student-athletes," added head coach Geoff Schaab.  "While at the same time, we tried to provide all these young men and their families with as much as we can about Dakota State University, the surrounding community, and our baseball program, so that they could make the right decision for their futures.  We answered many immediate needs with this recruiting class, especially with pitching, catching, defense and organizational depth."
