For former JUCO players, UH did ‘really good job’ of making Houston home

Junior college has become the feeding ground for many Division I baseball teams across the country, with many programs dipping into the talent pool to fill out their rosters.

It’s no different for Houston.

Of the 35 players on the Cougars’ roster this season, 15 of them began their collegiate baseball careers at a junior college.

Former San Jacinto College player and junior first baseman Ryan Hernandez, who is batting a team-high .333 with four home runs on the season, is just one of the many for UH who got their start in JUCO.
