Dominic Fletcher

How did we get him away from the west coast schools? Surely he was recruited there…and his glove alone is worth a scholarship.

Fletcher told me a couple of years ago that it boiled down to the fact that he wanted to play in the SEC. Arkansas coaches spend several days each summer at the Area Code Games in California, and Dave Van Horn spotted him playing one day in 2014, passed along his contact information and got him to commit pretty quickly.
