Texas Tech junior second baseman Jamordrick McGruder has been named a 2012 National Collegiate Baseball Writers Association third team All-America selection.

McGruder was one of just three second baseman in the country honored.

He is the 31st All-America selection in Texas Tech history and is the first Red Raider infielder to receive All-American recognition since short-stop Cameron Blair in 2005.  Overall, McGruder is the fourth second baseman in Tech history to be named an All-American.

McGruder led the Big 12 in 10 statistical categories batting .358 (69-for-193) with 54 runs, six doubles, eight triples, 27 RBI, 45 walks, .500 on-base percentage and ranked fourth in the country with 39-of-44 stolen bases.

He was a ninth-round Major League Baseball Draft pick by the Seattle Mariners while recently agreeing to terms with the Mariners organization to begin his professional career.

During his three seasons at Texas Tech, McGruder tallied a .325 (179-for-550) batting average with 139 runs, 15 doubles, 15 triples, 11 home runs, 88 RBI, 110 walks, 44 hit-by-pitch and a .469 on-base percentage.
