Wulff is a high school baseball All-American

 

Stanford incoming freshman Brandon Wulff was named a third team ABCA/Rawlings High School All-American, the American Baseball Coaches Association announced Thursday.

Wulff hit .459 with eight homers and 54 RBI in 33 games for Bishop Gorman (Las Vegas) this spring, according to Bishop Gorman's website.

The power hitter is one of 11 outfielders listed on the ABCA/Rawlings All-America list. He was also a first team All-Region 8 honoree.

Wulff was one of 12 players to sign letters of intent to Stanford for 2015-16.

Signees Mitchell Hansen (2nd round, Los Angeles Dodgers) and Tristan Beck (34th round, Milwaukee Brewers) were drafted by Major League teams.

Beck has told media outlets that he will honor his commitment, while Hansen signed for $997,500, according to MLB.com.

Other signed recruits include Nico Hoerner,

Nickolas Oar, Kris Bubic, Ben Baggett, Alec Wilson, Duke Kinamon, Christian Molfetta, Peter McEvoy and Nick Bellafronto.

Next to the Giants, Stanford baseball is the best around with the finest and most intimate seating a baseball fan can hope for. These young men are the best of the best in college ball and it is exciting to see new players signed that will continue the legacy of baseball at Stanford. Go Stanford!
