DURHAM, NC--The ODU Baseball Monarchs incoming class for the upcoming 2013 season received Honorable Mention recognition by Baseball America's recruiting issue on Oct. 25th.

"Chris Finwood's first class at Old Dominion overhauls the roster with 13 freshmen and seven junior college transfers. Lefthanded pitchers Andy Roberts and Ryan Yarbrough are polished juco transfers with command of three-pitches, including deceptive mid-80s fastballs. RHP Tommy Alexander, a freshman from Pennsylvania, attacks the zone with a mid-to-upper-80s fastball, a nice 73-76 curve and solid changeup. A pair of Yavapai (Ariz.) CC transfers--Jordan Negrini and Tyler Urps--could step into starting roles on the left side of the infield, as Urps is a slick defender at short and Negrini is a quality hitter with power potential and solid defense at third." -Aaron Fitt -Baseball America, Oct. 25, 2012
