UNC infielder Dillon Hazlett has transferred to Emporia (KS) State as he is now listed on the roster of the Hornets for the upcoming season. Hazlett started the 2010 season as the starting first baseman but ended up losing his starting job around the midseason. In sixty games last season, he had a .324 batting average (third best on the team) while hitting four homers and driving in 54 runs. (second highest total on team).
Hazlett started his college career at Allen County Community College where he hit .470 with 12 home runs, 53 RBI and 59 runs in 50 games in 2009 en route to NJCAA Second Team All-America honors and all-conference accolades as a sophomore. In his freshman season, he finished with a .387 with 26 stolen bases to claim Kansas Jayhawk Community College Conference Freshman of the Year Honors.
Hazlett transferred out of the program after last season after failing to be drafted. We should see how these moves will effect the North Carolina program this upcoming season.
