COACH CORBIN QUOTE: Jeren emerged as a key component of our 2015 Omaha team as a freshman and has steadily grown as a player. His physical skills are different, uncommon and fun to watch. He can impact a game with his feet, glove, arm and bat. His best baseball is ahead of him for sure. He is mature and very consistent in everything that he does on and off the field. His disposition makes him fun and easy to coach.
