Recruiting: Top-rated 2024 baseball prospect Konnor Griffin commits to LSU
Konnor Griffin, Perfect Game’s top rated baseball player in the 2024 recruiting class, committed to LSU on Thursday evening.
The two-way standout at Jackson Prep in Mississippi is a high draft risk. Originally a 2025 prospect, he decided to reclassify for the 2024 cycle.
Griffin managed a .476 batting average with a .617 on-base percentage as a freshman this past season. He also went 8-2 on the mound with a 1.64 ERA, striking out 59 and walking 15 in 42.2 innings. The right-hander reaches 93 mph with his fastball.
Jay Johnson Talks Gaining Continuity
“There were a few things that were really important,” Johnson said. “Obviously we have a ton of new players so building the concept of team with really good returners was a priority. To this point we’ve done as much as we can and that was positive.
“We were more deliberate with things this year because of the amount of new players but the work was much more quality and I say that because the foundation with how we’re gonna roll was more set in stone.”
