On Monday, BaseballAmerica.com released their preseason college baseball rankings.
With their 4th place finish in the college world series and 43-22 record in 2016, the Cowboys landed at number 18.
This is higher than their ranking on the D1Baseball.com preseason rankings where the cowboys did not crack the top 25.
While 18th could still be a little low, the Cowboys lost some talent this past year. On the other hand, Tyler Buffett (named Second Team Preseason All American), Trey Cobb, and Dustin Williams return.
Big 12 opponent TCU tops the list at No. 1. Florida State, Florida, LSU and South Carolina round out the top 5. Texas Tech was the only other Big 12 school to make the list at No. 25.
