On Tuesday morning, Texas Tech baseball's Brian Klein was named to the Collegiate Baseball Preseason All-American second team.

This marks the first time Klein has received any preseason All-American accolades, and is the 3rd straight season that a Red Raider has been named to the preseason list.

Last year for the Red Raiders, Klein was one of the more consistent presences in the lineup. He hit .315 and finished with 3 homeruns and 57 RBI in his junior year, starting all 66 games at second base for Tech.

Klein and the Red Raiders are set to open the 2020 campaign on Friday, Feb. 14, against Houston Baptist at 1 p.m. from Dan Law Field at Rip Griffin Park.
