LSU outfielder Dylan Crews was named Perfect Game/Rawlings Freshman of the Year on Friday for his dominant performance all season long. Per Perfect Game:

Perfect Game/Rawlings Freshman of the Year*:

Dylan Crews, Louisiana State

*only true freshman or first-year players were eligible

There was no doubting Dylan Crews’ ability dating back to his high school days as he was one of the top undrafted prospects in the 2020 class and easily one of the most famous names entering college for the first time. With a substantial amount of pressure following his decision to opt out of the 2020 draft, Crews did nothing but impress the coaching staff down in Baton Rouge during the fall and immediately earned the starting right field job along with the everyday three-hole position in the lineup.

From the moment the season started, Crews was playing like an absolute dominant force, finishing the year with a slash line of .362/.453/.663 and showing poise, maturity, and ruthlessness in the batter’s box. The freshman outfielder did more than just punish mistakes as he was one of the more consistent leaders in terms of exit velocity, while he showed polish and maturity in the box beyond his years.

Crews was a name heading into his first college season but there’s no doubting now that he’s on the forefront in terms of future stars of the sport. Crews knocked in 18 home runs during his freshman campaign, showing why he’s not only one of the best hitters in the sport, but also the early projected 1:1 candidate for the 2023 draft.

Well deserved Dylan! Without you the year would have been much shorter and next year you guys are going to take it all the way.

I'm sorry I must be confused, as the article is clearly describing Tre Morgan.

Morgan had a great year but nearly identical to Crews but the 18 HRs vs Morgan's 6 HRs is hard to deny. Plus it was the most HRs during a freshman year since Mike Fontenot
