Coach Corbin Quote: Our program got a lot better when Michael decided to bypass the major league draft and come back to school. He has been a starter in the outfield since his freshman year. He is one of those kids who "brings it" everyday, both mentally and physically. He's a winning kid and player... smart, savvy and very team oriented. He will be one of the premier players in the SEC and the country.
