NCAA Update, Week 3

The list keeps growing. The household names are still here, but you’ll find a few new sleepers littered throughout as well. Tons of solid pitching performances early. The hitters have some work to do, but I don’t think we’ll get a read on these guys until the warmer months come around. With a good portion of the country playing under less than stellar conditions last month (even in California!), the weather just hasn’t been very conducive to offense. Let’s look for that to change as March rolls on.

I wanted to share a recent find which has made tracking players so much easier. I found a link on NCAA.com to an individual career stat tracker, so I thought I’d post the link here. You can enter in any player, from any NCAA division. Very handy, as now I don’t have to track down each player on his school’s website anymore! I’m a little new to the college game, so cut me some slack, will you?

    1. Spencer, thanks for the comment! Turner is one of the guys who definitely needs to get the bat going this month. Hard to knock a .366 average, but only 1 XBH so far. I’d love it if he fell to the Giants, but I think his defense and speed will keep him top 10. If his bat takes off this summer, he’s easy top 5.

  1. I’m a big Hawaii fan and have enjoyed watching Matt Cooper pitch the past 1 + seasons. He has good stuff, works quickly, and pounds the strike zone. He throws a FB (87-90mph), change up, and a good curveball. I heard a former major league scout say that Cooper would not embarass himself in professional baseball. His curve has been described as a major league curveball which he does have trouble controlling at times. I expect him to have a good season for Hawaii and give himself a shot at professional baseball.

    1. Thanks for the report LG. Hawaii is really coming on after a slow start. I’ll be in LA in late April, right around the time they’ll be playing at Fullerton. I’m definitely looking to get to a game. Cooper and Thomas Eshelman would be a great Friday night matchup. Cooper could be a nice mid-top 10 round sleeper this summer if he keeps up his solid season.

I'd love your feedback!
