Head Coach Paul Mainieri on Cade Doughty:
“Cade Doughty has a great chance to be a special player at LSU along the likes of many great ones that came before him. He has the tools to be an all-around player in every phase of the game - on defense, with the bat, and running the bases. He clearly was one of the best players in the country in this recruiting year. He could have made himself available in the MLB Draft and been taken very early but instead chose to make himself virtually unsignable because he wanted to play at LSU like his brother, Braden, and his father, Richard. He is a hard-nosed player with a high level of competiveness and grit. He made the All-Star team this past summer in the Cal Ripken Collegiate League as a graduated high school senior, which is very rare. His power is continuing to develop and combines with outstanding bat control skills. I believe he will develop into one of the best players in the SEC as time goes on.”
