While the Perfect Game All-American Classic gives viewers a look at the top high school players in the country, and often serves as a preview for the MLB Draft the following June, more and more players from the Classic are also taking their talents to college baseball to compete at a high level.

Look no further than the 10 PG All-Americans that found their way to Omaha for the 2016 College World Series. Or the three previous Classic participants that were named to the Perfect Game/Rawlings College All-American teams for the 2016 season; Zack Collins and Sheldon Neuse were named to the First Team and Chris Okey to the Second.

In addition, four former PG All-Americans were named to the 2016 Perfect Game/Rawlings Freshmen All-American team (Luken Baker, Tristin English, Jonathan India and Alonzo Jones).

Carlos Cortes and Jeff Belge were named the top prospects in their respective summer collegiate leagues, as Belge was one of two pitchers (Tim Naughton) who combined to throw only the third no-hitter in the history of the Perfect Game Collegiate Baseball League (PGCBL).

Of the 76 former PG All-American participants listed below 26 are incoming freshmen looking to represent the next wave of college baseball stars. The list is filtered by the schools the players play for, with TCU leading the way with six former Perfect Game All-Americans on their roster. It’s no surprise that the Horned Frogs will enter the 2017 season as one of the favorites to be No. 1 thanks to the talented roster Coach Schlossnagle and his staff have assembled (they finished the 2016 season ranked third).
