The Buzz: Godfrey Back On The Market; Polak Gaining Heavy Interest



By Nathan Rode and PBR Staff

Big news dropped this week in the recruiting world when it came out that RHP Jake Godfrey (Providence Catholic HS, IL) would not be attending Notre Dame in the fall. Back on the open market, Godfrey will reportedly visit Louisiana State, UCLA and Vanderbilt. At 6-foot-3, 215 pounds, Godfrey has a physical presence on the mound and backs it up with a strong arsenal that captures the attention of scouts and college recruiters alike. His fastball ranges from 89-93 mph with some sink and he commands it well. His best secondary offering is a sharp slider at 77-80 and a changeup that sits in the high 70s with fade. Godfrey will be No. 1 prospect in the PBR Overall Rankings are updated. He has the upside to be a top three round pick in this year’s draft.

Here are some more notes in recruiting news…

+ RHP Joey Cominsky (Hamburg HS, PA), originally committed to Binghamton, will now sign with Pittsburgh during next month’s signing period. Cominsky’s scholarship to Binghamton was pulled after he swung his helmet and struck an opposing player in a football game. He faced simple assault and disorderly conduct charges. According to the Reading Eagle, the case was closed last month. Cominsky didn’t receive any penalty and his record will be expunged according to his lawyer.
