Collegiate Baseball finalized their 2013 recruiting rankings, and Vanderbilt made it to the top of the list. The Commodores will boast the top-ranked freshman class in the country this spring as Tim Corbin and his staff attempt to build on last season's stellar finish.

Eleven high schoolers helped to make up one of Corbin's strongest recruiting hauls. Six of the players earned late round picks in last June's Major League Baseball Amateur Draft. The five remaining freshmen were either All-State or All-Region performers. The class is made up of athletes from as far west as Fresno, CA, as far north as Braintree, MA, and as far south as Lakeland, Florida.

2012 marked the fourth straight year that a SEC team captured Collegiate Baseball's top ranking. LSU (4th), Florida (7th), and South Carolina (10th) rounded out the SEC's presence in the top 10. Every conference team with the exceptions of Missouri and Tennessee was included in the newspaper's top 40.
