HOUSTON — It was a busy weekend around the State of Texas, as several programs traveled to the area for important series. College of Charleston was at Houston, Florida Atlantic had a crucial Conference USA series at Rice, and Florida continued Southeastern Conference play with a trip to College Station, Texas, to take on Texas A&M.


After having a chance to take in some good games over the weekend, here are some thoughts on College of Charleston, Houston, Florida Atlantic, Rice, Florida and Texas A&M.




College of Charleston


* The first thing that stands out about this club is the physical nature of its lineup. Houston coach Todd Whitting brought it up with me following Saturday’s hard-fought contest. Charleston, on paper, might not have a spectacular offensive lineup, but this is a very physical group with a lot of potential. Outfielder Brandon Murray, who’s hitting just .256 with four homers and 19 RBIs, showed a strong frame with some serious pop in his bat, while shortstop Gunnar Heidt was the player I expected him to be. Heidt has a strong, compact, frame and had a very mature approach at the plate. Everything he hit in Saturday’s game against UH was on a rope. Heidt, like Murray, doesn’t have a great batting average with an identical .256 clip, but color me very surprised if these two aren’t at least hitting .290 by the end of the year as their schedule weakens.
