Coming off a rare season of missing the NCAA Tournament, Nebraska has added a 21-member class of newcomers that Collegiate Baseball ranked 13th-best in the nation. That’s the highest the publication has ever listed a Nebraska group of recruits.
The Huskers also return Tyler Farst, an all-Big 12 first baseman; Adam Bailey, the team’s leading home-run hitter and run producer; six other position players who made at least 20 starts; and five of the top six starting pitchers from 2009.
