The latest praise for the University of San Diego's recruiting class of 2006 came from Baseball America on Tuesday in its annual report of the top 12 recruiting classes nationwide- dubbed the publication's `Dandy Dozen.' Led by the efforts of eighth-year head coach Rich Hill and third-year recruiting coordinator/pitching coach Eric Valenzuela, USD successfully courted 6-foot-4 freshman LHP Brian Matusz (Cave Creek, AZ) the second-highest MLB draft pick to land on a Division I campus this fall. Baseball America singled out Matusz and four other new USD pitchers in ranking San Diego's recruiting class of 2006 No. 12 among all Division I programs.

Immediate contributions from San Diego Padres 15th-round selection LHP/OF Josh Romanski (Corona, CA) and junior college All-American RHP Anthony Slama (Santa Ana College) should further improve a USD team that has won 30-plus games for six consecutive seasons, including winning back-to-back West Coast Conference Championships in 2002 & 2003. All-CIF RHP Scott Denault (San Clemente, CA) and CIF Player of the Year LHP Ricardo Pecina (San Diego, CA) come to USD after enjoying outstanding prep careers in Southern California.

San Diego, UCLA (5th) and Stanford (9th) were the only West Coast schools to be included in Baseball America's list of the nation's top 12 recruiting classes. USD's recruiting class of 2006 also ranks No. 16 with Collegiate Baseball Newspaper.
