On Tuesday, the Tigers learned that at least one of the drafted commits in their vaunted, No. 1-ranked 2022 recruiting class will make it to campus.
Five-star catcher Brady Neal, who was drafted by the Milwaukee Brewers in the 17th round earlier in the day, will reportedly not sign and will enroll at LSU instead, according to a report from The Advocate’s Leah Vann.
Neal played his high school ball at powerhouse IMG Academy in Bradenton, Florida. He was one of two Tigers signees Milwaukee took a flyer on late in the draft as it also drafted Jaden Noot, who is still yet to make a decision regarding his future.
The 2022 MLB draft saw a total of eight LSU signees drafted, and a number of those were high picks who are expected to go pro. But getting Neal — the No. 74 overall prospect entering the draft — to come to campus is a nice win.
