Nevada baseball player Dillan Shrum's journey at Nevada has been nothing short of easy.

The 6'1" senior started playing baseball at three or four years old, and hasn't looked back since. Growing up about 20 miles east of San Diego in El Cajon, Shrum wasn't heavily recruited, but caught the attention of Nevada head coach TJ Bruce during the fall of his senior year. Shrum had a family friend who played at UCLA while Bruce was an assistant, and Shrum's cousin, Trenton Brooks, who played at Nevada from 2014-2016, played for Coach Bruce during his first year as a head coach with the Wolf Pack. Shrum would soon become part of head coach TJ Bruce's first recruiting class.

Shrum's first practice during the fall of his freshman year, he tore a part of his knee, and that was the first of three surgeries in three years. Although his season was cut short for the first time in 2019, Shrum tied Weston Hatten with a team high 10 homeruns. During his time at Nevada, so far he is batting .299, with 141 hits, 75 runs, 98 RBIs and 22 home runs.
