Marmol, a 5-foot-11, 170 pounder from Orlando, Florida, played in 56 games this season. The junior was named first team All-Southern Conference, and was the first conference player drafted this year. The Cougars' leadoff hitter led the league with his 84 runs scored. Marmol batted .345 with seven home runs, 45 RBI and 28 stolen bases in 34 attempts.
