The two-time Southern Conference Pitcher of the Week ranks fourth in the nation and first in the conference in strikeouts. Kent is 18th in NCAA Division with 12.98 strikeouts per nine innings. Opponents are hitting just .193 against him this season.

Kent is one of three SoCon pitchers to make the list.

VMI travels to Virginia Tech Tuesday for a non-conference game at 6 p.m.
