Wake Forest has nine juniors who have played key roles in the past two seasons, all of whom Walter referred to as professional prospects. Position players Lanzilli, Seymour, Poteet, Muntz and Ludowig, and pitchers Shuster, Menendez and Fleming and the dual-role McNamee are the juniors, and sophomore infielder Turconi is a draft-eligible sophomore.

With draft eligibility comes a pressure that can sometimes engulf previously productive players — that’ll be a hurdle worth tracking for some of these Deacons.
