Travis Jewett

NEW ORLEANS – Tulane University baseball coach Travis Jewett announced today the addition of 24 members of the team’s 2021 recruiting class. This year’s class marks the sixth under Jewett.

Joining the Green Wave for the 2022 season will be Landry Alligood, Ethan Alsron, Teo Banks, Kyle Beaty, Seth Beckstead, Dylan Carmouche, Blake Dincman, Adam Ebling, Brady Hebert, Cam Van Hoorebeke, Brennan Lambert, Jackson Linn, Brady Marget, Michael Massey, Tracy Mitchem, Brayden Morrow, Nick O’Reilly, Carter Robinson, Cristian Sanchez, Gavin Schulz, Grant Siegel, Ben Tate, Jonah Wachter and Chandler Welch.

“I can’t thank Jay Uhlman and Daniel Latham enough for their relentless effort in putting together yet another outstanding class,” Jewett said. “Each of these young men are not only good players, but are wonderful people that we need in our program. Each of these guys bring a little something different to the table and we couldn’t be more excited to welcome this group. We have been super fortunate to land a great mix of pitchers/position players, as well as high school and junior college/four-year transfers. With the return of several key components from last year’s team, we truly believe that we have a lot of positive momentum right now. I look forward on watching this team come together.”
