Tennessee sophomore outfielder Alerick Soularie was named a Rawlings/Perfect Game All-American Honorable Mention honors Wednesday.

He is just the second UT player to earn postseason All-American recognition by Perfect Game, joining Nick Senzel, who was a first-team All-American in 2016.

Soularie led the Vols in batting average (.357), slugging percentage (.602), on-base percentage (.466) and runs scored (52) while also ranking second in hits (70), home runs (11), RBIs (46) and total bases (118) en route to first-team All-SEC honors.
