2012 Preseason All-America Team

Jim Callis -Premium Content

The 2011 college class was the type that comes around maybe once a decade. It was loaded with quality pitchers, starting with the first three picks in the draft (Gerrit Cole, Danny Hultzen, Trevor Bauer) and a total of 11 first-rounders. Far from one-sided, it had a number of gifted position players, including an elite hitter (Anthony Rendon) and an exceptional athlete (George Springer). That group was the exception that proves the rule: Big league teams usually weaken the college crops by persuading high school players to turn pro rather than continue their educations. The 2012 college draft pool pales in comparison to last year's.

Aaron Fitt -

In four years at the helm, Kevin O'Sullivan has transformed the Gators into a college baseball powerhouse. After missing regionals in 2006 and '07, Florida exceeded expectations to make a regional in O'Sullivan's first season in 2008. The next year, the Gators won a regional. The year after that, they made it to Omaha. And this year, they earned a preseason No. 1 ranking, ended the regular season atop the rankings and advanced all the way to the CWS Finals. For constructing a model program with a rock-solid foundation, O'Sullivan is Baseball America's College Coach of the Year.
