Oklahoma freshman Ben Abram was named to Collegiate Baseball Newspaper’s Freshmen All-American team, the publication announced Wednesday.

The 6-foot-7, 264-pound right-hander out of Ontario, Canada, served as the fourth starting pitcher on a staff that finished the season ranked third in the Big 12 in ERA (3.92). In 15 total appearances, Abram compiled a 6-4 record and 4.24 ERA.

Abram was selected in the 37th round of the 2018 MLB Draft and will be eligible to re-enter the draft in 2021. For now, he plans to continue learning from head coach Skip Johnson, who he refers to as a "baseball genius."

“He’s taught me so much and I’ve only been here for a few months,” Abram said. “I feel like I’ve gotten significantly better since I came here, and I have to thank a lot of that to (Johnson).”
