HOOVER, Ala. – Four LSU baseball players received All-Southeastern Conference recognition Monday in a vote of the league’s 14 head coaches.

Centerfielder Dylan Crews was named SEC Player of the Year, First-Team All-SEC and SEC All-Defensive Team; right-handed pitcher Paul Skenes was named SEC Pitcher of the Year and First-Team All-SEC; third baseman Tommy White was voted First-Team All-SEC; and first baseman Jared Jones received Freshman All-SEC honors.

Crews, a junior from Longwood, Fla., leads the SEC and is ranked seventh nationally with a .423 batting average. He has 14 home runs, 13 doubles and 57 RBI, and he is also the league-leader in on-base percentage (.573), runs scored (79) and walks (56).

Crews is No. 2 in the nation in on-base percentage, No. 2 in runs scored and No. 3 in walks. He has a reached base streak of 59 games, which includes all 55 games of this season and the last four games of the 2022 season.

Skenes, a junior from Lake Forest, Calif., leads the SEC in wins (10), strikeouts (164), earned run average (1.77), innings pitched (86.2) and opponent batting average (.161). He is ranked No. 2 on LSU’s all-time single-season strikeouts list, trailing only Ben McDonald, who recorded 202 strikeouts in 1989.

Skenes is No. 1 in the nation in strikeouts, strikeouts per nine innings (17.03), WHIP (0.75) and strikeout-to-walk ratio (10.93). Skenes is No. 3 nationally in hits allowed per nine innings (5.19), and he is No. 4 in ERA.

White, a sophomore from St. Pete Beach, Fla., has 89 RBI this season, already the sixth-highest single-season total in LSU history. He is No. 2 in the nation in RBI per game (1.75), No. 2 in total RBI and No. 11 in slugging percentage (.793).

White is hitting .389 on the year, and he leads LSU in doubles (22) and home runs (20). He is No. 1 in the SEC in RBI, No. 2 in doubles, No. 3 in total bases (161), No. 4 in batting average, No. 4 in slugging percentage, No. 5 in hits (79) and No. 7 in homers.

Jones, a product of Marietta, Ga., is hitting .307 this season with 11 doubles, 14 home runs and 45 RBI. He is second on the LSU squad in homers, third in RBI and fourth in doubles as a true freshman.

Morgan not only should be second team. He should be All-Defensive. This is an egregious snub.

No pitchers other than Skenes and no all defensive players other than Crews is quite telling.
