Baseball America presents its College All-American teams for the 2024 season.

Walker Janek, C, Sam Houston State

Perhaps the most well-rounded catcher in college baseball this year, Janek enjoyed a career year in which he hit .364/.476/.709 with 15 doubles, a career-high 17 home runs and 58 RBIs. On top of his offensive prowess, Janek has an advanced defensive skill set behind the dish with a plus arm. He could be the first catcher drafted this year.

Blake Burke, 1B, Tennessee

Burke has some of the top raw power of any hitter in the country. Following a modest sophomore season, he put together a career year to the tune of a .376/.449/.713 slash line with 19 home runs, 56 RBIs and an SEC-leading 28 doubles. Burke has double-plus raw power and figures to be selected on day one of the draft this year.

Travis Bazzana, 2B, Oregon State

Whether it is for Oregon State or summer baseball—he was Cape Cod League MVP in 2023—Bazzana has done nothing but dominate at every stop in his career to this point. This spring, the Australia native hit a career best .407/.568/.911 with 16 doubles, 28 home runs and 66 RBIs. He is in the running to be selected first overall in this year’s draft.

Charlie Condon, 3B, Georgia

Condon has put together one of the best seasons in recent memory. His .436 average and 36 home runs both lead the nation, and his homer total is a BBCOR record. Condon has an advanced feel to hit, which makes him a tough at-bat for opposing pitchers to navigate. He is also a strong contender to be drafted first overall.

Kyle DeBarge, SS, Louisiana

An ultra-athletic shortstop, DeBarge took home Sun Belt player of the year honors after hitting .356/.418/.699 with new career highs in almost every category, including doubles (19), home runs (21) and RBIs (72). His tool set enables him to impact the game in myriad ways, and he figures to be drafted inside the top two rounds.

James Tibbs III, OF, Florida State

The Atlantic Coast Conference player of the year was one of the key reasons behind Florida State’s first super regionals appearance since 2019. Tibbs’ combination of a plus hit tool and plus power translated to a career-best .375/.497/.813 slash line with 17 doubles, 28 home runs and 94 RBIs. He’s a corner-only player, but he can hit.

Drew Burress, OF, Georgia Tech

Burress put together one of the best seasons in the country, regardless of class. The freshman announced his presence with a gaudy .381/.512/.821 slash line and a Georgia Tech freshman record 25 home runs and 67 RBIs. He has tantalizing tools packed into a 5-foot-9 frame and is on track to be one of the first players off the board in 2026.

Jace LaViolette, OF, Texas A&M

A 6-foot-6 Adonis, LaViolette picked up right where he left off as a freshman and hit .314/.453/.757 with a team-leading 28 home runs and 77 RBIs. Armed with light-tower power, LaViolette—along with freshman Gavin Grahovac and junior Braden Montgomery—was part of one of the most formidable lineups in the nation.

Christian Moore, DH, Tennessee

Moore and Blake Burke formed college baseball’s version of the “Bash Brothers.” Like his Vols counterpart, Moore turned in a career year, hitting .376/.453/.796 with 17 doubles, 71 RBIs and a Tennessee single-season record 32 home runs. He has seen his draft stock ascend and could be selected in the first round this year.

Hagen Smith, SP, Arkansas

Arguably the most dominant pitcher in the country, Smith went 9-2 with a 2.04 ERA and 161 strikeouts—a total that ranked second nationally—to 34 walks in 84 innings. He possesses a hellacious one-two punch in an upper-90s fastball and mid-80s slider, both of which grade out as at least 60s on the 20-80 scouting scale.

Chase Burns, SP, Wake Forest

Burns made the most of his only season at Wake Forest after transferring from Tennessee. He worked a career-low 2.70 ERA with a best-in-the-nation 191 strikeouts to 30 walks in 100 innings. From a pure stuff standpoint, Burns is hard to top. On top of his thunderous fastball, he mixes in a demonic slider and sharp downer curveball.

Ryan Johnson, SP, Dallas Baptist

Following a great sophomore season, Johnson took his game to the next level this spring. With an 11-3 record and 2.21 ERA, the 6-foot-6 righthander cruised to the Conference USA pitcher of the year award. His 151 strikeouts not only led C-USA but ranked third nationally behind only Chase Burns and Hagen Smith.

Trey Yesavage, SP, East Carolina

The ace of East Carolina’s pitching staff, Yesavage is the only first-team All-American outside of Arkansas’ Hagen Smith to rank inside the top five nationally in both ERA (2.02) and strikeouts (145). Yesavage also pitched his way to an 11-1 record and was named the American Athletic Conference pitcher of the year.

Charlie Beilenson, RP, Duke

A stalwart of Duke’s bullpen, Beilenson pitched his way to a 2.01 ERA with 92 strikeouts across a whopping 34 appearances that amounted to 62.2 innings. His 12 saves were tied for fourth nationally and ranked atop the Atlantic Coast Conference. Beilenson is an advanced strike-thrower whose plus changeup is his calling card.

Wyatt Lunsford-Shenkman, RP, East Carolina

Lunsford-Shenkman was dominant in his 46.1 innings, pitching to a minuscule 1.55 ERA with 79 strikeouts to 21 walks. He befuddled hitters all season with his five-pitch mix and was one of the most effective-late inning arms in college baseball. Lunsford-Shenkman averaged nearly two innings per appearance.

Jac Caglianone, UT, Florida

Caglianone somehow upstaged his epic 2023 season. At the plate, he hit .411/.532/.860 with 33 home runs and 68 RBIs while slashing his strikeout rate from 18% to 8%. He has thunderous bat speed and double-plus raw power. On the bump, he is armed with an upper-90s fastball he used to work a respectable 4.71 ERA in 72.2 innings.
