Head Coach Paul Mainieri on Collier Cranford:
“Collier Cranford might be the ‘sleeper’ of this class. I say this because he missed most of his senior season due to injury as he hurt his throwing arm in March and required Tommy John surgery. Before he was injured, however, he was coming on very strong and was even garnering interest from professional teams as well. He ran the sixth-fastest time at the East Coast Pro event. He’s a really athletic infielder with good feet, good hands, and (when healthy) a strong arm. He is an extremely intelligent young man who is actually young to be entering college as he should have been a 2020 high school graduate. He won’t be able to throw competitively during fall practice, but his rehab is coming along nicely and he will be full speed for the spring season.”
