The Buzz: Labas Switches To LSU, Others De-Commit
June 23, 2017

The college coaching carousel is in full swing, which means we’re also seeing de-commitments around the country. Most of the changes are with underclassman, but there was one notable senior to make a switch recently. North Florida has a new staff and released its recruits from their letters of intent. That made RHP A.J. Labas (Trinity Christian Academy, FL) available and Louisiana State picked him up. Labas was a 17th-round pick of the Mets, but if he opts for school instead of signing, it would be a late boost for the Tigers. They lost RHP Blayne Enlow (St. Amant HS, LA) to the draft, as the Twins popped him in the third round. While Labas certainly isn’t a replacement for Enlow, he could certainly soften the blow. He has a strong frame and a low-90s fastball with arm-side sink while mixing in a sharp slider.
