FAYETTEVILLE (NWAOnline.com) - While Dave Van Horn assists the USA Collegiate National Team this summer, the Razorbacks baseball coach is keeping close tabs on what is going on back home with a bevy of drafted signees in a prized recruiting class.
Arkansas had 13 players who are either signed or committed drafted during the MLB Draft earlier this month, including four players taken in the first five rounds. Balancing who will be on campus and who won't is a full-time headache.
"I'll just say this: I wouldn't want to be around me right now," Van Horn said. "Between Coach (Dave) Jorn, Coach (Todd) Butler and I, it's always on our mind and we're always trying to figure it out. If you've got kids that aren't being upfront with you, it's almost like they're holding you hostage. We've got to to take care of the program, so we've got to make some tough decisions."
