Happy Tuesday, folks. Today is all about baseball and basketball. We have links to some offseason transfer and commitment news for basketball as well as some baseball news wrapping up the season.
The rocky mountain showdown will continue in the future. Colorado State and Colorado are planning on new contracts beyond the ones already in place to continue playing a home-and-home series. The new contract would be for 2029-2030 and 2033-2034. After this upcoming season, the two teams will resume the series in 2023 and 2024, however, there is unlikely to be any matchups between 2024 and 2019 due to CU’s non-conference schedule already set.
After being granted another year of eligibility, beloved Lobo Anthony Mathis will transfer from the program and use his final year of eligibility as a grad transfer. He won’t have to sit out a season. The decision may come as a bit of a surprise but we hope Mathis finds success wherever he decides to play.
The MLB draft is this week and Nevada has some talent that could catch the eye of some MLB teams. Last year was the first since 2009 that no Wolfpack player was selected. This year, however, the Wolfpack have some promise, perhaps the biggest prospect is Jaylon McLaughlin. Originally drafted by the Mets, McLaughlin is a versatile shortstop who hit .339 with 25 steals this past season. LHP Ryan Anderson is also an intriguing prospect, the 6-6 southpaw has a fastball running up to 90 mph. This past season he posted a 2.66 ERA with 42 strikeouts in 40.2 innings of work. Make sure to read the entire article to see all of Nevada’s possible draftees.
