Horns come in at No. 4 in Big 12 preseason poll

Senior day heroics end Texas’ regular season on a high note

The Big 12 Conference announced its 2023 preseason coaches poll on Thursday. Texas checks in as No. 4 on the list behind Texas Tech, Oklahoma State and TCU.

Here is a complete look at how the coaches voted ahead of the season.

  1. TCU (5)
  2. Oklahoma State (4)
  3. Texas Tech
  4. Texas
  5. Oklahoma
  6. West Virginia
  7. Kansas State
  8. Kansas
  9. Baylor

The 2023 Longhorns are going to have a ton of fresh faces in the lineup following back-to-back College World Series appearances. Texas lost the majority of its production from last season, including the likes of Ivan Melendez, Pete Hansen and Murphy Stehly.

David Pierce even hit the reset button on the coaching staff in the offseason, making two new hires to the program.

This season’s roster includes a handful of returning veterans and a talented group of newcomers. Dylan Campbell and Lucas Gordon broke out on the scene for Texas late last season. In addition, Eric Kennedy is a rock-solid player back for his senior year.

Texas has lots to prove on the baseball diamond this season with hopes for another trip to Omaha in June.
