The award, to be announced on July 16, goes to the nation's top college baseball player. Shortstop Khalil Greene won the award as a Tiger in 2002.
The Columbia, SC native hit .350 with 15 doubles, three triples, 13 homers, and 46 RBIs in 63 games (62 starts) in his first season as a starter in 2007. Hogan, one of 11 Tigers selected in the 2007 draft, was taken in the 16th round by the Cleveland Indians, but he elected to return for his fifth season. Hogan red-shirted in 2004 after a standout career at Irmo High School.
Hogan had the two longest hitting streaks on the team in 2007, including a 13-game hitting streak in March. He then ended the year on a 15-game hitting streak and will carry that streak into the 2008 season. Hogan also had a .410 on-base percentage, .607 slugging percentage, and nine stolen bases in 2007.
Hogan was a big reason the Tigers advanced to a super regional in 2007. In five NCAA Tournament games, he was 12-for-20 (.600) with four runs scored, two doubles, a triple, two homers, and five RBIs. His .600 batting average in the tourney was the best mark by a Tiger in a single NCAA Tournament in history.
