The conference’s coaches agree.
The Big Ten released its coaches’ poll Wednesday afternoon, and the No. 22 Terps are at the top.
Michigan is behind John Szefc’s club, followed by Nebraska, Indiana, Michigan St., Iowa and Minnesota in that order. In addition, the conference has also anointed Nick Dunn, Marty Costes and Kevin Smith as players to watch.
Maryland finished its season without an invite to the NCAA Tournament for the first time in four years last season after losing a record eight players to the 2015 MLB Draft. This year, the Terps appear to be reloaded and ready for a return to postseason play.
Maryland will begin its season in Clearwater, Fla. on Friday against Ball State in the first of three games of the Clearwater Tournament.
