LSU sophomore pitcher Griffin Herring has added another honor to his list of accolades.

Herring has been named to the College Sports Communicators 2024 All-District Baseball team. He’s also been named a finalist for Academic All-America recognition.

The 2024 Academic All-District Baseball team recognizes the nation’s top student-athletes for their combined performances on the diamond and in the classroom. Herring has a 3.5 cumulative GPA and is a finance major at LSU.

He posted a 1.79 ERA last season for LSU in 50.1 innings pitched. He pitched a season-high 6.1 innings in an elimination game against Wofford and struck out seven batters while allowing no walks and one run.

He also posted a 2-1 record and a 1.14 ERA in SEC regular-season games. No player who threw at least 30 innings in SEC play had a better ERA than him.

Head coach Jay Johnson will hope to have the draft-eligible lefty back next season. Johnson has said that Herring will be a starter next year if he returns.
