The USC Trojans football program (and baseball program) landed a massive get in tight end Duce Robinson. The incoming star is set to play both football and baseball, although he will likely emerge as one of Caleb Williams’ favorite targets.
However, his baseball profile isn’t as appealing, and a new series of prospect rankings was released with Robinson not listed in the top 250, per MLB Pipeline.
It’s rare that a player of Robinson’s caliber plays two sports, but that is the direction things are heading at USC. With these latest rankings being released, it likely increases his chances of playing baseball next season and extending his time in Southern California.
Nonetheless, it will be exciting and interesting to see if Duce Robinson can succeed at both sports. For the sake of Lincoln Riley, hopefully he can excel on the football field.
The 2023 MLB draft is Sunday, July 9 through Tuesday, July 11 in Seattle, on MLB Network.
