The 2013 recruiting class for the University of Louisville baseball program is ranked among the nation's best.

For the fifth time in the last six seasons, University of Louisville head coach Dan McDonnell and assistants Chris Lemonis and Roger Williams have inked a top 25 recruiting class.

The Cardinals 2013 recruiting class, which includes a number of highly-sought after prospects, has received national rankings by a pair of the game's top publications.

Ranked 19th by Baseball America in late October, the U of L class was placed 11th in the PerfectGame.org class rankings released this week.

PerfectGame.org states that "the Cards assembled another recruiting class that will help them stay in the mix for the ACC regular season title moving forward, along with more trips to Omaha."

Among the higher-rated signees are pitcher Zach Burdi, the younger brother of current reliever Nick Burdi, outfielder Corey Ray and junior college transfer Grant Kay.

The Cardinals continue to recruit well both in-state out throughout the region. Highlighted by seven in-state players, the class also includes four from talent-rich Illinois.

Louisville begins its new season on February 14 against West Virginia at the Homewood Suites Tournament presented by Charleston Crab House and hosted by The Citadel. The home opener is February 19 against Eastern Kentucky.
