No, but after having a really good fall, he never got a great shot at earning a spot in the lineup during the season. This and with Petersen, Huckstorf and Anthony all returning, there really isn’t any room for him in the outfield.Any insight on his own accord or mutually agreed on?
OK. Can now confirm that Freshman Tulane 1Bman - Brady Marget - has entered the portal.
Brady Marget (33) - 2022 (Freshman): Appeared and started in 47 games in the 2021 season… Concluded the season with a .290 batting average, 38 hits, 22 runs, andtulanegreenwave.com
I know that Coach Sutherland scouted him when he was listed by PG as the best 1B prospect in Wisconsin coming out of high school. He played on the same team as Brady Counsell. Iowa didn't offer him primarily because he would have been blocked by Williams.
I watched a fair amount of Tulane games this year. The kid has a sweet left handed stroke. Plays solid defense as well. He's received positive feedback from independent evaluators regarding his chances to ultimately play at the next level.
I can also confirm that Iowa is "on notice" of Marget entering the portal and will be reaching out to him.
A certain ACC school (don't feel like I can name the specific school) will likely express interest as well. If (and I stress IF) he were to receive offers from both schools, it would be a difficult decision for him.
I think that we can expect that Brady Counsell's name will be in the portal. He is reportedly quite unhappy with what is going on at Minnesota. However, the positional need for what Counsell brings to the table isn't as glaring.
But . . . Marget and Counsell would be very interested in reuniting (assuming Counsell wants to leave Minnesota). They are close friends.
A strikeout rate of 50% will keep you out of the lineup.No, but after having a really good fall, he never got a great shot at earning a spot in the lineup during the season. This and with Petersen, Huckstorf and Anthony all returning, there really isn’t any room for him in the outfield.
I don't feel as if I can share much of what I've learned in the last 24 hours other than to identify that (a) the person promoted to HC (at least on an interim basis) is well liked by players; (b) there has been an urgent effort by this person to reach out to players in the portal urging them to return to Tulane; and (c) the efforts to reach out have been largely well-received by those in the portal.
Thanks for the insight!!Well . . . Tulane's "pitch" was successful. All but a done deal that Brady Marget will remain with the Green Wave.
The process has been fascinating to "watch and learn" from afar. Although I've read about how scholarship athletes "pain" over what to do when the coach who recruited them and for whom they agreed to "sign" gets either (a) fired or (b) voluntarily leaves, this was my first foray into how it impacts not only the athlete but the parents as well.
I've read some accolades thrown out there by national writers about why promoting in-house was a smart move by Tulane's AD. Be cautious before you drink that Kool-Aid. He likely had no other option after 15 players entered the transfer portal when no replacement was in the fold. Given the new rules, players had to enter the portal by 7/1 to preserve their rights to transfer. It was a "no brainer" for the kids to do so. Tulane's AD had to act quickly - otherwise there would have been a mass exodus. Had he acted before the end of the season and promoted the coach from in-house, very few Tulane players would have entered the portal.
I can also state with confidence that Heller and Sutherland made a great pitch and spared no effort. Iowa was in a great spot until Tulane promoted from within.
Oh well . . . I trust that they'll be able to find a left handed bat in the portal.
Davitt's not returning?
Man it would be great if Brecht and Morgan could figure it out this summer and be really good next year.
Brecht's first inning:
1. K swinging.
2. K swinging but runner reached first due to wild pitch. (Runner caught stealing)
3. K swinging but runner reached first due to wild pitch.
4. K swinging.
Brecht's second inning:
1. K swinging.
2. K swinging.
3. K swinging.
Brecht's third inning:
1. K swinging.
3. K swinging.
(Removed from game after throwing 2.2 innings)
10 batters faced; 9 Ks; 46 pitches; 31 strikes
I'm hoping that he needs innings to increase durability and improve control. Have to think that he was on a 10 batter limit or 50 pitch limit.
