Southern California lost its opening series to North Dakota at home and never seemed to recover, sitting around .500 all season. However, the Trojans likely will have as many or more players drafted than any Pac-12 team, with Kriske surging toward the front of the field as a priority senior who has stuff and has performed. The 6-foot-3, 190-pounder used to top out around 90 mph in the past but improved his velocity significantly this season, with scouts saying he's hit 95-96 mph regularly with his fastball. His secondary stuff was raw when he came to Troy, but his breaking ball has become a serviceable pitch. At times, it's a true slider with depth and tilt, earning average grades. Kriske should wind up a priority senior sign this year.
