Four members of the LSU baseball team, including three freshmen, received 2021 All-SEC recognition Monday in a vote of the league coaches.
Freshman first baseman Tre’ Morgan was named Second-Team All-SEC, Freshman All-SEC and SEC All-Defensive Team; freshman rightfielder Dylan Crews was voted Second-Team All-SEC and Freshman All-SEC; junior pitcher Landon Marceaux earned Second-Team All-SEC honors; and freshman shortstop Jordan Thompson received Freshman All-SEC recognition.
Morgan is No. 3 in the SEC in cumulative batting average (.370), No. 1 in hits (80), No. 1 in runs scored (59), No. 4 in triples (4), No. 2 in doubles (15), No. 3 in on-base percentage (.461) and No. 5 in stolen bases (14). The product of New Orleans, La., is hitting .431 (25-for-58) in his last 13 games with three doubles, one triple, one homer, seven RBI, 17 runs and four stolen bases.
Crews, a product of Longwood, Fla., enters Tuesday’s SEC Tournament game versus Georgia riding an eight-game hitting streak. He is No. 9 in the SEC in batting average (.347), No. 6 in hits (74), No. 4 in runs scored (56), No. 3 in total bases (129), No. 7 in on-base percentage (.448) and No. 6 in walks (37).
