2025 LSU Baseball Commit Marcos Paz Discusses His Recent Pledge to The Tigers

Texas is home to one of the top 2025 pitching prospects in Hebron High Schools Marcos Paz. Marcos recently shut things down and gave his commitment to Jay Johnson and the LSU Tigers. Fresh off the heels of a national championship the Tigers continue to cash in on top tier recruits. The 6'2"-210 lbs RHP took some time out to discuss why LSU and much more with me.

This spring Marcos posted a 7-3 record with 57.2innings pitched. He maintained a 1.699 ERA, with 90k’s, allowing a 0.139 BAA. As for his pitch arsenal his fastball lives in the 90-93 mph range and tops out at 95, with a change up in the 83-85 mph range and a slider that sits a 80-82 mph range.

Marcos on how long it took him to realize LSU was the school for him "LSU just had that feel when I got to campus, and I knew right away that LSU is where I want to be." On if there were any other schools, he was heavily considering he added "LSU was my number one ever since I first started talking to the coaches, however I really enjoyed my visits to Mississippi State and TCU." He detailed what set LSU apart "LSU was one of my top choices throughout the entire recruiting process. The coaching staff is awesome, they’re all easy to talk to and Coach Yeskie was my favorite college pitching coach even while he was at Texas A&M. The campus is absolutely beautiful, and the people are amazing. When I got there for my visit last week, I immediately knew LSU was the place for me."

He commented on the atmosphere at the Box for the Super Regionals with " It is absolutely phenomenal. You can just tell how much everybody at the game truly cares about LSU baseball and wants to win. The fans do an amazing job of really becoming that 10th man. When we We discussed other commits and if there were any, he is looking forward to playing with and he added " I have thrown to Omar Serna a couple times now and I really enjoy throwing to him. Omar is probably the best catcher I’ve ever thrown to. He’s a great guy, fun to be around and to say the least I’m glad I’ll be playing with him not against him."

Some of his favorite accomplishments he stated were " I’m very proud that I made it to the area code games the past two years, and I’m looking to go again this coming summer. I’m also very proud to say that my high school won the district championship this year in one of the toughest districts in the state." On what he feels are his strongest attributes are "my strongest attribute is my maturity and composure on the mound. I’ve also gained confidence over time which has been a big part of my game." The million dollar question when it comes to college baseball recruiting is always "will he make it to campus" and the effect that NIL has on the situation these days. Marcos shared his thoughts with me on that " I think NIL will play a part, but you’re not guaranteed anything with NIL as an incoming freshman, so the draft is definitely in consideration. I’ve always wanted to play in the big leagues so when the time comes around, I will make a decision based on what’s best for me in the long run whether that’s the draft or LSU. "
