Alabama's hot start to the 2016 season may have surprised some.

The skepticism surrounding this year's team was warranted after having to replace the likes of Mikey White, Kyle Overstreet, and Casey Hughston. However, the Tide is beginning to gain traction in various college baseball polls.

After going 3-1 in last weekend's Irish Classic, Alabama moved up to #23 in Baseball America's latest rankings.

Here is the complete top-25:

  1. Florida
  2. Texas A&M
  3. Oregon State
  4. Louisville
  5. Vanderbilt
  6. Miami
