Nebraska third baseman Max Anderson was named a freshman All-American by Collegiate Baseball Newspaper on Wednesday.
The Millard West product, already named the Big Ten freshman of the year, hit .332 with seven home runs and 32 RBIs in 45 games. His batting average and total hits (61) were both second on the team, with his hit total tied for second in the conference.
Anderson's honor marks the third consecutive season Nebraska has produced a freshman All-American. Leighton Banjoff earned the honor from Collegiate Baseball in 2020, while Colby Gomes was honored by the National Collegiate Baseball Writers Association in 2019.
Anderson's nine three-hit games led Nebraska, which finished with the Big Ten's top offense in terms of batting average, total hits, and runs scored. He had two four-hit games, tied for second on the team.
