Garrett Wade, LHP, Hartselle HS, AL (Auburn)
Cole Henry, RHP, Florence HS, AL (Louisiana State)

OTHERS TO WATCH: LHP Christian MacLeod (Hunstville HS, AL) stands at 6-foot-4, 215 pounds and showed a consistent ability to pitch. He commands his fastball to both sides of the plate, touching 92-93 mph while sitting 88-91. He creates good arm-side run as well. His breaking ball may be his best pitch, as it shows tremendous depth with late action at 78-80. His changeup has really developed and is a weapon against right-handed hitters as it tumbles away from them. He is committed to Mississippi State. RHP Chase Wilkerson (Headland HS, AL), a Florida State recruit, has an athletic frame and short arm action. His fastball, which can sit around 90-92, has riding action. He also mixes in a slider at 76-77 and a changeup at 82.
