More College Splits

Okay. Two weeks, a dozen programs, and a couple hundred hours of work later, CollegeSplits.com is a reality. Not every NCAA division one team has started playing, but of the 10,000+ players in our database, we've got stats on about 7,000 of them. Of course, pro baseball fans only care about a few hundred of those.

One of the guys I've been watching is Jemile Weeks, Rickie's younger brother. Here are some tidbits about his college career so far:

... hit .352 and led the team in hits (90), triples (8), total bases (142) and assists (167) ... tied a freshman record at UM with a 16-game hitting streak and tied a school record with nine assists in the field against Duke ... started every game for the 2006 National Team gold medalists ... hit .348 with four home runs and 24 RBI for Team USA ... led Team USA with 23 walks and had 14 stolen bases ... might be the best all-around second baseman in the country.
That's a pretty good college track record for a sophomore. As you might recall, the Brewers drafted Weeks in the 8th round a couple of years ago, but as you can see, he opted for college instead. I don't blame him: at the rate he's going, he'll set a few more records, then get big bucks in the first round of the '08 draft.
