The University announced on Wednesday that Collegiate Baseball has named Austin to their All-American team. The full release is posted below:

TUCSON, Ariz. - University of South Carolina redshirt freshman relief pitcher Cade Austin has been named a Collegiate Baseball Freshman All-American, the newspaper announced this morning (Wednesday, June 8).
