Washington, after appearing in only Collegiate Baseball News’ rankings at 19th place last week, is now ranked in every major college baseball poll.

The Huskies made their biggest move in the Baseball America poll. They made the highest jump of all previous unranked teams, debuting at No. 14. The Huskies have not been ranked by Baseball America since May 1, 2006, and haven’t been ranked this high since reaching No. 12 on Feb. 14, 2005.

Collegiate Baseball has the Huskies ranked 11th this week — a jump of eight spots.

Washington made its season debuts in the Perfect Game College Top 25 at 18th, USA Today coaches poll at 22nd and National Collegiate Baseball Writers Association at 24th.

The Huskies (20-5-1, 8-1 Pac-12) lead the conference by two games. Washington, which hosts Oregon beginning Friday, has a 10-game winning streak and is 17-1 over the past 18 games.

Washington outfielder/first baseman Brian Wolfe was named Pac-12 player of the week for the second consecutive week. Wolfe was 7 for 12 last week with two homers, six runs and 10 runs batted in.
