Nola had previously been named a first-team AA by Baseball America, Collegiate Baseball, Perfect game and the NCBWA. The ACBWA/Rawlings honor makes him a consensus All-American for the second consecutive season after also accomplishing that feat in 2013.
He's the only LSU player since Brad Cresse in 2000 to receive five separate first-team All-America distinctions in the same season.
Nola, who was also named the SEC Pitcher of the Year for the second straight year, became LSU's 13th first-round pick since 1989 after being selected seventh overall by the Philadelphia Phillies on June 5. He signed five days later for the full slot value of a little more than $3.3 million. He's expected to debut for single-A affiliate Clearwater later this summer.
Thursday's honor solidifies Nola as one of the most accomplished LSU pitchers of all-time. He ranks third in career strikeouts (345), fourth in career ERA (2.09) and fifth in career wins (30). He was also a Golden Spikes Award finalist in 2014.
