ATHENS — Georgia pitcher Cole Wilcox has been named a Collegiate Baseball Second Team All-American, the publication announced Tuesday.

A 6-5, 232-pound native of Chickamauga, was dominating in 2020, posting a 3-0 mark with a 1.57 ERA in four starts. He tallied 32 strikeouts and only two walks in 23 innings pitched for the Bulldogs that finished 14-4 and ranked as high as No. 2 nationally. The 2020 college baseball season was halted and ultimately canceled in mid-March because of the coronavirus pandemic.

One of Wilcox’s finest outings this past season came as part of a combined shutout of No. 17 Georgia Tech in Atlanta. He pitched seven innings of three-hit baseball with no walks and a career-high 11 strikeouts in a 12-0 rout. In his Bulldog career, Wilcox is 6-2 with a 3.37 ERA in 23 appearances including 10 starts.

A draft-eligible sophomore and accounting major, Wilcox is a consensus first-round prospect for the upcoming Major League Baseball Draft. He is a two-time member of the SEC Academic Honor Roll. He was a 2020 preseason third-team All-America selection by Baseball America and was on the watch list for USA Baseball’s Golden Spikes Award. 

Collegiate Baseball newspaper is based in Tucson, Arizona, and has been covering college and high school baseball since 1957. The complete release is also on our website at www.baseballnews.com
