Though the weather hasn't exactly cooperated thus far, seemingly throughout most of the country but especially in Texas and the Midwest, as junior college baseball has been mostly going strong for a few weeks now. Obviously, the southern schools are deeper into their schedules thus far than are the northern schools, but it looks like just about everyone has at least gotten under way. So with that, this is the first in-season update of the Junior College Top 25 team rankings – which will be weekly between now and the end of the season – and a good bit has happened, as one can imagine, throughout the first several weeks.
San Jac (Texas) remains at No. 1, starting off the season hot with a 12-2 record thus far, though we didn't get to see them against the gauntlet of what would have been the Tournament of Champions, which got cancelled due to weather earlier in February. Walters State (Tenn.) takes over at No. 2 with a record of 15-3, while Southern Nevada checks in at No. 3. Central Arizona has gotten off to a hot start thanks in part to the right arm of the No. 2 overall ranked JUCO prospect in Nick Iverson, and as such see themselves rise up to No. 4, with Crowder (Mo.) rounding out the top 5.
