Florida State left-hander Parker Messick was named a first-team All-American by the National Collegiate Baseball Writers’ Association.
Messick went 7-5 with a 3.38 ERA and 144 strikeouts (with just 18 walks) in 98.2 innings. Batters hit just .215 off him. One of Messick’s goals was to have the same number of starts (16) as walks and he came very close to achieving that mark.
NC State’s Tommy White, who entered the transfer portal, was the first-team designated hitter on the NCBWA team. The St. Petersburg native is reportedly considering FSU, among other schools. White hit .362 and broke the national record for freshmen with 27 home runs. He also had 74 RBI.
Georgia Tech catcher Kevin Parada, Clemson third baseman Max Wagner and Miami reliever Andrew Walters were first-team picks from ACC schools. The full list can be viewed here.
Messick, Bryce Hubbart and Brett Roberts are participating in the MLB Draft combine, which began Wednesday and runs through Saturday, in San Diego. MLB Network plans coverage on Thursday and Friday beginning at noon.
