Clemson baseball, which is ranked as high as No. 14 in the major polls, opens its season at home on Friday versus South Alabama (4 p.m.), as the first of a three-game weekend series.
Clemson named senior right-hander Brooks Crawford the Opening Day starter, coming off of an 8-2 campaign with a 3.24 ERA as a junior.
Two freshmen will complete the rotation this weekend with right-hander Davis Sharpe (Dacula, Ga.) going on Saturday and left-hander Justin Wrobleski (Canton, Ga.) going Sunday. Wrobleski was drafted by the Seattle Mariners out of high school (36th round) and is regarded as a top-40 freshman overall (38) and top-10 in the ACC (10) by Perfect Game. Sharpe was ranked the No. 7 freshman in the ACC by D1Baseball and was picked in the 34th round by the Pittsburgh Pirates.
