The Panthers were also ranked in all five major college polls for the first time. This season, Pitt is transitioning from the Big East to the ACC.

Last season for the Cavaliers, Schnurbusch hit .306 and led the team in hits (44), triples (4) and RBI (21).  He also led the team with 14 multiple-hit games and six multiple-RBI games, and tied for the lead with 13 stolen bases.

He was also one of Johnson County’s top pitchers, finishing with a 2.11 ERA. He led the staff in innings with 59.2, and tied for the team lead in victories with four. He also mowed down 60 batters, second most on the staff.

Schnurbusch chose Pittsburgh over East Carolina, Wichita State and Florida International.
