Head Coach Paul Mainieri on Wes Toups:
“Wes Toups is that prototypical left-handed hitting centerfielder that covers a lot of ground on defense and is a tough out at the plate. He is a very speedy runner (6.5 seconds in the 60-yard dash), and he closes well on the ball, allowing him to make highlight-reel catches on a regular basis. He has a very patient approach at the plate, allowing him to draw a lot of walks. However, he also has pop in the bat and the ability to hit the ball out of the ballpark. He could be the next in a long list of great outfielders at LSU.”
