MORGANTOWN, W. Va. -- Senior right-handed pitcher Matthew Reckling was named a third team All-America selection by the National Collegiate Baseball Writers Association (NCBWA), the organization announced on June 13.
Reckling has garnered a host of national postseason honors after a sensational 2012 season on the baseball diamond. The Houston native has already been tabbed as a second team All-America by Collegiate Baseball magazine, a first team all-South Central Region honoree by the American Baseball Coaches Association (ABCA), the C-USA Pitcher of the Year, and a First Team All-Conference USA selection. Earlier this month he was selected by the Los Angeles Dodgers in the 14th round of the MLB draft.
For the Owls he went 8-3 on the mound with a 2.98 ERA and he struck out 99 in 87.2 innings of work. Reckling held a total of 310 opposing hitters to a composite .187 batting average and he ranked among the C-USA leaders in ERA, strikeouts and complete games (2). He was named a C-USA Pitcher of the Week three times and he finished his collegiate career with 15-7 record and 3.75 ERA.
Under the direction of head coach Wayne Graham, Rice baseball won the 2012 C-USA regular season championship with a 41-19 overall record. The program made its 18th-straight appearance in the NCAA Tournament and posted its 18th-straight season with at least 40 wins.
