College Baseball Daily continues our countdown to the start of the 2011 College Baseball season by checking in on the Top 100 Players in the country. We will be providing one player per day until we reach number 1.
We continue the countdown today at number 69 with Gonzaga junior LHP Ryan Carpenter. Carpenter starred at Cactus High School in Peoria, Arizona, where he was a 4-time letter winner and was named to the All-State team his Senior season. He struck out 119 batters in 73 innings in 2008, racking up a 10-2 record with a 1.20 ERA. During that season, he threw 2 no-hitters and a one-hitter. He was selected in the 21st round of the 2008 MLB Draft by the Tampa Bay Rays, but elected to go to school.
