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.

Crawford breaks down his mentality for the Friday start and he's joined by teammates Carson Spiers (RHP), Logan Davidson (SS) and Kyle Wilkie (C):
