Rutgers baseball continued to build for the future with the addition of another player last week. On Friday, the Scarlet Knights announced the official signing of Caden Christman.
With the New Hill, North Carolina catcher in the mix, Rutgers has added a potent bat to their lineup. Christman is a member of the 2024 recruiting class.
During his high school career, Christman has appeared in 45 games and shown a little power with four extra-base hits. While he has only posted a .212 batting average, he hit .400 during six games as a freshman on varsity.
Although his college debut is still months away, Rutgers did not hide its excitement for having Christman on board on social media.

Our 2024 class gets another big boost with @ChristmanCaden, a high-level catcher from PRO5 Academy down in North Carolina!

While he is still developing, Christman has shown that he can make an impact with the bat. He” works slightly uphill and uses strength well to impact the ball hard on a line when squared,” according to Perfect Game. If he can improve his consistency, Rutgers offense will be in good hands.
Regardless of how the Scarlet Knights continue to add to their 2024 class, they have a promising catcher in Christman they can rely on.
