Florida is ranked No. 7 in Baseball America’s preseason NCAA Division I poll released Wednesday, marking the first time since 2006 (No. 3) that the Gators have appeared in the publication’s preseason rankings.

The Gators start practice Friday. Third-year head coach Kevin O’Sullivan and the Gators begin the 2010 campaign Feb. 19 at McKethan Stadium, when USF visits for the opener of a three-game series.

UF is among six Southeastern Conference teams in the poll, a group that includes LSU (3rd), South Carolina (10th), Arkansas (17th), Georgia (22nd) and Ole Miss (24th).

Texas is ranked No. 1. Florida State is No. 9 and Miami is No. 16.
