Arkansas OF Jared Wegner named SEC Player of the Week

No time at all.

That’s how long it took Jared Wegner to make himself known at Arkansas.

The Creighton transfer was named SEC Player of the Week on Monday after a dynamite opening weekend for the Diamond Hogs.

Wegner went 6 for 11 with two home runs, two doubles and eight RBI as Arkansas went 2-1 at the College Baseball Showdown in Arlington, Texas on the weekend. The Razorbacks knocked off Texas and Oklahoma State and lost to TCU to open the season.

Wegner’s best game was against the Pokes. He went 2 for 4 with a homer, a triple, five RBI and two runs. Arkansas won the game in seven innings, 18-1, on Sunday.

Arkansas’ turnaround is quick as the Diamond Hogs prepare to host Grambling at Baum-Walker Stadium on Tuesday at 3 p.m.

More Arkansas baseball!
