With Major League Baseball off until feather notice, baseball fans are looking for some form of the game. NCAA Baseball is in full swing and at its highest talent ever, here are five superstars to look out for this college baseball season.
No 1 – Dylan Crews CF LSU – Widely regarded as the “Mike Trout of college baseball, Dylan Crews is the projected number one pick of the 2023 MLB draft. Crews is a straight-up five-tool player that can do it all. Crews leads the high-powered offense of the LSU Tigers and is one of the best players in the nation.
No 2 Jace Jung 2B Texas Tech – As many Rangers’ fans know by now Jace is the younger brother of 3rd base prospect Josh Jung. Jace is the reigning Big 12 player of the year and is headed back to Lubbock for his final year at Tech. Jung is projected as one of the top picks in the 2022 MLB draft and could possibly end up in Arlington if he produces at a high level this year
No 3 Jacob Berry 3B/RF LSU – The second LSU Tiger on this list is Jacob Berry, one of the top prospects in this year’s draft, (Yes I may be biased Geaux Tigers). Berry is a transfer from Arizona who followed head coach Jay Johnson to Baton Rouge. Berry has crushed some home runs early in the season and is one of the most eclectic players in the coutry.
No 4 Tommy White 1B/DH NC State – Tommy White has earned the nickname Tommy tanks for a reason. White has 9 home runs and 29 RBIs in just 10 games. White is one of the most exciting players to watch and totally represents “lift big and hit bombs”.
No 5 – Brooks Lee SS Cal Poly – Lee comes from a smaller college at Cal Poly but is one of the best players in the country. The switch hitter is batting .500 on the season with one home run and 13 RBIs. Lee is projected as one of the top prospects in this upcoming draft.
