Good news for Tech

Luke Burnett picked up his first honor of the 2008 season earlier this week courtesy of Baseball America.

Burnett ranked 14th on the magazine's list of the 30 top college draft prospects and finally gives Louisiana some recognition as far as that goes. Baseball America listed only one state player among its Top 100 high school prospects for the 2008 draft.

Burnett is a 6-foot-8, 260-ponund right-hander whose numbers were less than expected a year ago. Given his size and his hard-throwing ability, there is a good chance scouts will look past them if he puts up another less-than-stellar year statistically.

Either way it's good recognition for Tech, which is heading in the right direction under coach Wade Simoneaux.
