Vanderbilt's dream season hasn't just caught the eye of fans in Nashville. Executives from the USA Collegiate National Team have noticed as well.

Those coaches tabbed three Commodores to join the national squad once the College World Series comes to a close. Pitcher Carson Fulmer and second baseman Dansby Swanson were picked to join the roster of the international club. Freshman outfielder Bryan Reynolds, who absolutely tore up Stanford's pitching in the Nashville Super Regional, will also get a chance to make the team thanks to a training camp invitation.

Representing the United States on the diamond has become a Commodore tradition under head coach Tim Corbin. Fulmer and Swanson will join a list of Team USA alumni that includes players like David Price, Pedro Alvarez, Sonny Gray, and Tyler Beede.

The full roster has not yet been released, but a partial list of names shows that standouts like LSU's Alex Bregman, TCU's Riley Ferrell, and Clemson's Chris Okey will join Fulmer, Swanson, and possibly Reynolds on the roster. The team begins play on July 1st against Chinese Taipei.
