JuCo first team All-America OF --
It's safe to say the rebuilding effort has started in earnest at Cumberland University.

Coming off a 20-31 season in 2015, CU's Hall of Fame Coach Woody Hunt is hitting the recruiting trail with a vengeance.

His first big signee for the 2016 season is Jay Feliciano, a power hitting outfielder from Southeastern Community College in West Burlington, Iowa.

A first team All-Amerian for the BlackHawks, Feliciano was also the Iowa Community College Athletic Association Player of the Year and helped lead SECC to a record of 42-18 and a berth in the NJCAA Region XI Tournament.

As a sophomore at SECC, he sported a .381 batting average, with 18 doubles, 79 runs batted in and 23 homers.

His 23 homers and 79 RBI were good for second and first in the nation respectively.

As a college freshman, the native of Arecibo, Puerto Rico set a school record with 31 doubles.

"We signed Jay back in November," Coach Hunt said, "I was holding my breath through the (MLB) draft. He told us he would come if he didn't get drafted, and he's a man of his word.

"Jay will be a tremendous addition to our roster. We've got a few more we hope to nail down soon."
