  3. Eddie Yamin IV: An infielder/catcher from Dayton, known for his consistent hitting and dynamic playstyle. ​
  4. Chris Stanfield: An outfielder from Auburn, who may not have eye-popping numbers at the plate but is expected to contribute defensively and potentially develop into a two-way player. ​
  5. Luke Hayden: A right-handed pitcher from Indiana State, who had a strong 2024 season and is expected to become a pivotal relief pitcher for LSU. ​
  6. Chandler Dorsey: A relief pitcher from South Florida, who had a solid 2024 season with impressive stats in terms of saves, ERA, and strikeouts.
  7. Luis Hernandez: A power-hitting utility slugger from Indiana State, who brings versatility to the lineup and has shown consistent performance throughout his college career. ​
  8. Zac Cowan: A right-handed pitcher from Wofford, known for his impressive record, strikeouts, and low ERA. ​
  9. Deven Sheerin: A right-handed pitcher from Mount St. Mary’s, who had a dominant freshman season with a high strikeout rate and a fastball that reaches impressive speeds. ​
