KNOXVILLE, Tenn. – Tennessee infielder Max Ferguson was named to the Perfect Game/Rawlings Preseason All-America second team this week.
The sophomore infielder led the SEC with nine stolen bases while batting .333, scoring 12 runs and hitting two homers in 13 games played during the shortened 2020 season.
Entering his third season with the Vols, Ferguson has been tabbed one of the top 2021 MLB Draft prospects by D1Baseball.com (No. 24) and Baseball America (No. 48).
During his two seasons on Rocky Top, Ferguson has totaled 32 hits, 23 runs scored, 15 RBI, 27 walks, and 13 stolen bases despite missing a large portion of his freshman season due to injury.
Ferguson was one of 14 SEC players named to Perfect Game’s three preseason All-America teams. The honor marks the first All-America recognition for Ferguson during his career. The Florida native was named to the SEC Spring Academic Honor Roll in 2019 and 2020.
