Where Mississippi State's 2022 Recruiting Class Stands in the Baseball America Rankings

Here's how the Bulldogs' latest recruiting class compares to the rest of the nation's programs, according to Baseball America.

Mississippi State baseball has had no shortage of success lately -- as its national championship win from earlier this year would imply.

While the Bulldogs lost some key starters to the 2021 MLB Draft like right-handed pitcher Will Bednar and outfielder Tanner Allen, coach Chris Lemonis has been hot on the recruiting trail. Between his efforts and some of the promising players that remain in Starkville, MSU is poised for yet another great season.

When Baseball America released its latest recruiting rankings, the Bulldogs were listed at No. 4 overall -- that's right behind Miami and just ahead of Louisville. Vanderbilt, the same program MSU defeated in the College World Series, took the top spot.

Here's a look at the complete recruiting rankings for the Class of 2022 from Baseball America:

1. Vanderbilt

2. LSU

3. Miami

4. Mississippi State

5. Louisville

6. Clemson

7. Arkansas

8. Duke

9. Ole Miss

10. Florida

11. Oklahoma State

12. Texas

13. Auburn

14. Georgia Tech

15. Texas Tech

15. CF Dakota Jordan

16. C Ryan Williams

17. P Austin Tommasini

18. C Ross Highfill

19. OF Hollis Porter

20. P Nathan Williams

The Bulldogs are set to kick off the season with the bar set incredibly high as they take on Georgia on March 18. Repeating last year's success will be no simple task, but if there's anything we've learned since Lemonis has been with the Bulldogs, it's that he knows how to win and how to build a winning program.

The sky is the limit for the Diamond Dawgs moving forward, with more recruiting power than ever.
