Schreiber led Nebraska with a .330 batting average, 7 home runs and 51 runs batted in this season. He also earned first-team All-Big Ten honors for the second straight season and ranked sixth in the conference in hits (70) and RBI (46).
Schreiber now has to decide whether to return to Nebraska for his senior season. If he chooses to pursue professional baseball, he will join his brother, Brad, who is a part of the Rays organization.
