2023 CSE All-Americans

College Sports Evaluation has created the first and only All-American selections based solely off of objective data. Zero bias. Biases such as where a player goes to school, which conference a player plays in, play of years past are all out of the window. The only factor that is taken into account in the All-American and All-Region selections is in-game data analyzed by CSE’s Data & Analytics Team.

CSE’s goal with these selections is to highlight athletes that deserve to be highlighted, regardless of any biases. 

The CSE All-American rankings are based on FIP (pitching) and wRAA (offense), and are adjusted to account for strength of schedule:

  • aFIP is Adjusted Fielding Independent Pitching. This stat takes into account only what the pitcher can control (Ks, HRs, BBs, & HBPs) and doesn’t account for above or below average defensive play behind the pitcher. The adjustment made to FIP takes into consideration the average offensive rating of their opponents. Offensive rating is determined by the average number of runs scored. If a pitcher plays against teams with an above average offensive rating, their FIP would improve. 
  • awRAA is Adjusted Weighted Runs Above Average. This calculates how many runs a player has contributed to on an offense, compared to the national average of zero. The adjustment made to wRAA takes into consideration the average defensive rating of their opponents. Defensive rating is determined by the average number of runs allowed. If a player plays against teams with an above average defensive rating, their wRAA would improve.  



  • NiJaree Canady ended the year as the top pitcher of 2023 with an adjusted FIP (aFIP) of -0.090. How is this possible? After an adjustment for Stanford’s top 5 strength of schedule Canady’s aFIP became lower than should be possible. In theory, no pitcher can have a negative FIP. Canady did. That is how dominant NiJaree Canady was this year.
  • Offensive Highlights – Indiana’s Taryn Kern lead the nation in adjusted wRAA (awRAA) this season with 57.56, followed closely behind by Tennessee’s Kiki Milloy (57.49). Both Kern and Milloy added over 57 runs to their team’s offensive output. If it sounds like a lot, that is because it is.
