South Carolina junior catcher Grayson Greiner earned Second-Team Preseason All-America honors from Perfect Game, as announced on Monday afternoon. 

This marks Greiner's second preseason accolade, as he earned Second-Team Preseason All-America honors from Collegiate Baseball as well. 

Greiner played this past summer for Team USA and was a 2013 second-team All-SEC selection. Baseball America ranks Greiner the No. 24 best college prospect for the 2014 MLB Draft as well as the No. 2 best catching prospect in the country. He hit .298 with four homers and 38 RBI. Greiner also was the team's top hitter in SEC games as he hit .310 (31-for-100) in 27 league contests last year.

The Gamecocks open the 2014 season against Bucknell on Feb. 14 at 3 p.m.
