Additional information after the jump

Tennessee
Coach: Dave Serrano, 1st year at UT, 286-136-1 all-time
2011 record: 25-29, 7-23 SEC

Key Players
SS - Zach Osborne - .330 avg, 19 RBI, .389 OBP, .961 Fielding %
1B - Davis Morgan - .278 avg, 16 RBI, .361 OBP, .985 Fielding %
C - Ethan Bennett - .262 avg, 25 RBI, 7 HR, .356 OBP, .982 Fielding % - Preseason All-SEC 2nd Team
SP/OF - Drew Steckenreider - 6.12 ERA, 2-0, 37 K, 32.1 IP, .311 OBP hitting
SP - Nick Williams - 6.48 ERA, 2-1, 30 K, 33.1 IP

Watch for Steckenreider, he's getting a lot of attention as a potential darkhorse candidate for All-SEC after a sensational fall camp. I'd like to ask anyone with information on the 2011 commitments exactly who ended up enrolling, UTsports.com doesn't have the spring roster up yet.




Northern Illinois
Coach: Ed Mathey, 240-261-1 at NIU(10 years), 445-432-3 all-time
2011 record: 30-27, 25-16 MAC

Key Players
RP - Kyle Glancy - 2.86 ERA, 1-0, 12 SV, 28.1 IP - Preseason All-American, All-MAC
SS - Alex Jones - .352 avg, 15 2B, 6 3B, 47 RBI
1B/DH - Jeff Zimmerman - .326 avg, 11HR, 47 RBI
CF - Jamison Wells - .321 avg, 27 SB, 26 RBI
SP - Tony Manville - 4.73 ERA, 9-1, 42 SO, 72.1 IP

This is a team that you absolutely DO NOT want to be behind late in the game, Glancy is just too good to reliably come back on.
