CORAL GABLES, Fla. -- In its annual breakdown of the country's top recruiting classes, Baseball America rated the Miami Hurricanes' 13-member group as the 10th-best incoming class in the nation.

The publication's rankings were the second to recognize the Hurricanes' 2012 class, comprised of 11 true freshmen, one redshirt freshman and one junior. Collegiate Baseball newspaper rated the Hurricanes' 2012 class the ninth-best in the nation in its annual rankings released in late September.

It was the first time the Hurricanes had a group ranked in the top 10 by Baseball America since 2006, as Miami was recognized with the second-highest rated recruiting class in the Atlantic Coast Conference (North Carolina, No. 5).

Four of the 13 newest Hurricanes were selected in June's 2012 Major League Baseball First-Year Player Draft: Grant Heyman (11th round, Toronto Blue Jays), Brandon Lopez (34th round, Toronto Blue Jays) and David Thompson (38th round, New York Yankees). Another newcomer, righthanded pitcher Jace Herrera, was selected in the 36th round of the 2011 First-Year Player Draft by the Boston Red Sox.

All fall practices at Alex Rodriguez Park at Mark Light Field, held every Monday through Saturday until Nov. 17, are open to the public. Practices are set to begin each day at 2:30 p.m.
