Deadline is Friday at 5 p.m. So far, the following players that committed and signed to FIU and were drafted remain unsigned by their teams:

Gabriel Rodriguez, OF, Toa Alta (PR) - Twins - 11th Round
Abdiel Layer, SS, Colegio Angle David HS (PR) - Brewers - 13th Round
Christian Santana, RHP, American Heritage - Brewers - 15th Round
Logan Allen, LHP, University HS - Orioles - 16th Round
Oraj Anu, OF, Home School - Red Sox - 28th Round
Andres Santana, OF, Doral Academy Charter - Astros - 29th Round
Jose Garcia, C, Doral Academy Charter - Red Sox - 38th Round
Joe Sanchez, LHP, Terra Environmental Research Institute - Braves - 39th Round

IF we can get 4/5 of these guys (at least 2 pitchers), we are in good shape. Let's go F I U!

Doesn't look like any of these did.

Even though we lost alot of guys that ended up getting drafted very high it could have been alot worse. This will still likely end up as a Top 5 or top 10 class which is still a great job by Mervyl. I am very curious to see who the JUCOs are we are bringing in. The team will be very young next year so it would be beneficial if a couple of talented JUCO players can come in for a year or two to help bridge the experience gap. Anyone know who they are?

Correction..looks like Andres Santana signed even though he was drafted in the 29th round. This is another big loss offensively.

yeah, ok, super huge loss after getting 7 drafted, 5 of which were earlier selections, 2 of which are also outfielders, players on campus. I don't think anyone is going to cry over the #3 rated class in the Nation. Go F I U!

Great signing! Shenton was #167 in PG's rankings for 2016 and previously a Washington commit. Should be a good boost to the offense.

Anu is going directly to CC, as is Brandon Dorsey, who I don't recall seeing drafted before. Go F I U!
