A late 2019 commit and a former Washington State commit who opened things up when they fired their coach. Stahl is a right handed hitting shortstop from Mountain Vista in Colorado the same high school as freshman to be Sam Ireland and transfer Jack Liffrig. Stahl has hit at the top of their lineup the last 2 seasons and been very solid at shortstop. He hit .391 this year and .444 last season and had 8 home runs this season as well as 5 in 2018.

Super blessed and excited to be a Gopher next season! #gogophs pic.twitter.com/NisucXxbNy— Drew Stahl (@drew_stahl16) June 8, 2019
The freshmen class this year didn’t live up to what I had hoped for but the gophers seem to be recruiting at a much higher level over the past few years with a wider recruiting radius (CO kids, Fredrickson, deeper roots in IL, Bork et al). Exciting news and trending upwards after a so-so season.

Some interesting news that I've thought was coming for a little while now. https://www.twincities.com/2019/06/29/charley-walters-twins-derek-falvey-thad-levine-are-keepers/
Look for former Stillwater pitcher-outfielder Drew Gilbert, who last week was named Minnesota Mr. Baseball, to de-commit from Oregon State due to a coaching staff change within the Beavers. The Gophers could be among considerations.

Meanwhile, teammate pitcher Will Frisch remains committed to Oregon State and already is in Corvallis preparing for his freshman year.

WTF? Gilbert to Tenessee.
Definitely disappointing. Pretty much every team in the country was after him. He was supposed to visit LSU. Felt like the Gophers had a solid shot. The Tennessee choice is puzzling to me, I mean I know they are a team that is on the rise a little but just seemed like he had so many better options if the SEC was gonna be his choice.

2020 RHP out of Port Washington, Wisconsin. Currently ranked 6th in Wisconsin. Former Purdue commit that opened things up after their coach left for Oregon. Has been dominant this summer with a mid 90's fastball. Perfect Game has him as the #73 player in the 2020 class right now.

Reopened when Mizzou's hitting coach took a head job this summer. Brother Jack transferred here this summer.

I travel to see Gophers in Omaha at B1G Tourney. The players are so nice and usually get my son a ball and autograph it. Living in Western Iowa does have it perks being close to Omaha. Now time to see Gopher baseball in the CWS!!!
