We're not the only school that does this, but it's disturbing when it's done to athletes (yes, I know how that sounds). My brother goes to NYU (he's 19 yrs younger than me) and this summer he wanted to take a calculus class at Miami. NYU said no. NYU is ranked 36 and Miami 44. We're not talking Harvard and SW Texas Teachers College here.

This is the most frustrating problem. In all of my convos with Rick Jones, this is the issue that p!ssed him off the most....why can't we give a kid an admission decision within hours or at worst a couple of days? Dannen has been pressuring Gibson Hall on this, but this is a Cowen problem that has continued under Fitts. As president, you go to admissions and tell them "I don't give AF what you are doing, you get them an admissions decision within 48 hours or we're going to find someone who will."

The admissions department at Tulane has been and continues to be something that holds us back. Even if we can't admit a kid...TELL US so we can move on! Don't beat around the bush for months and then let us know at the 11th hour. The same thing happened to me but we found a way around it because I really wanted to go to Tulane because it was my favorite school. My uncle played at Tulane and I was a 5th generation student. I wasn't a great player or a difference maker, but I was willing to come to Tulane and it wouldn't have cost the team a scholarship and I turned down scholarships from a bunch of other schools (Notre Dame, Northwestern (Ill.), Navy, UNO, Southeastern, ULL) and several preferred walk on offers (LSU, Alabama, Ole Miss). How can I get into Notre Dame and Northwestern and not get into Tulane as a 5th generation legacy who is coming to play baseball for free???? And why couldn't I get in? My class rank wasn't high enough at Jesuit (despite a GPA over 3.2) and they had my sister's ACT score from 7th grade, not my real one. True story.

Schloss could not have been better to me. He and Coach Jones worked with the admissions department along with several other people to rectify the problem. The admissions department still wouldn't admit me after finding my real ACT score. It was late April and all of the scholarships I had turned down were now gone with the exception of Southeastern. After much back and forth, Tulane settled on admitting me to the University College for a semester, and they made me go to Summer School before I could enroll in the Fall. At an alumni barbecue, Cowen sought me out and said "I've heard a lot about you" with a smug grin. I wanted to punch him. It all worked out, but it still ticks me off thinking about it.

Surprised all of Jewett's "private school recruiting experience" didn't help him here...


I don't believe that Vandy baseball recruits many , if any JC players. It doesn't need to. It gets good enough freshman to never need to recruit JC players.

Hmmm, you don't say...


What does recruiting have to do with Admissions? If you can find great players it isn't a coaches fault if admissions are stupid. I am sure Jewett has guidelines but until you get actual transcripts there ain't much you can do. It does seem he has recruited pretty dang well so far since given a chance.

It's got everything to do with it...no point in recruiting them if you can't get them into school.

Exactly. Vandy, Rice and Stanford have a system in place that allows for an admissions decision almost immediately. That way they don't expend resources recruiting kids who they can never admit. Every scholarship dollar you earmark for one kid is a dollar you can't promise to another. If the other schools can do it, why can't Fitts help us get this done?

That means that we probably lost two of our three best hitting JC transfers. That does not bode well for next season.

I knew we'd have trouble getting him into school. I saw long ago on perfect game that his High school GPA was 2.8

I noticed that the updated Tulane baseball roster online for fall 2017 has risen from 19 to 20 names as of today or the last couple of days anyway. Chase Solesky is listed now, and I could have sworn he had disappeared after announcing he would transfer. Wonder if anything good is up with his name reappearing.

21. Tony Ortiz - Arkansas State/Pacific NW JC? - 1B/LHP


Just wanted to take a look back at all the guys that we had committed but for whatever reason, be it inability to get credits transferred or maybe not enough scholarship money, never made it to campus.

Tony Ortiz ended up at Missouri. Hit .231, .276 OBP in 51 at-bats. Did not pitch.
Braedon Barrett ended up at ULM and hit .235 had a .379 OBP, 5 HRs, 11 doubles and 12-17 on Stolen bases.
Ryan Calhoun remained at Harford CC and did really well. .327 batting average .486 OBP and 16 HRs. He's now committed to Saint Louis University.
Caden Doga ended up at LSU-Alexandria and took a redshirt.
Hayden Onorato went to Delgado. Doesn't look like played at all.

Forrest Webber had Tommy John and I think he's expected to be at Tulane next year.
Andrew Gorham was on the roster in the fall and I assume he was cut.
Marshall Rosenberg, I cant find anything on him.

Based on the numbers listed here, we didn't miss out on too much. All the JUCO pitchers we signed made it to campus and pitching is really what we needed more of. None of these guys were helping wit that.

from what I have heard no reason to miss or bemoan Onorato's departure.
