Below is a past look at Pickett's profile.

No. 2 ranked 2015 and No. 26 overall, currently committed to Mississippi State. 6-foot-4, 215 pounds. Big body, thick athletic frame/build.  Physical specimen that can continue to add strength at the next level.  Plays right field with good instincts.  Has a strong arm which he flashed in infield, firing the ball on a line with carry on a one hopper to the catcher.  At the plate, he is an intimidating hitter.  Slightly open stance, hits from the left side. Short load, with quick hands.  Has a smooth, long finish driving through the ball.  Great hip explosion on contact displayed on a 3-2 count bomb that carried over the centerfield wall on a line.  Shows patience at the plate.  Doesn’t leak front-side on off-speed, keeps his hands in the hitting position.  Good projection for the next level, will be a player to watch at Mississippi State.  Greg went 1-5 with 1RBI

Currently ranked No. 3 in the 2015 class and is a Mississippi Commit. 6-foot-4, 215 pounds. Pickett is really starting to come on this season. The big left handed hitter showed opposite field power driving a home run to left center field. Shows advanced bat speed at the plate and you cannot ignore his presence. One of the top left-handed hitting prospects in the country. After a slow start to the season in his last 5 games he has hit 4 homeruns, has 11 RBI's, and has 3 doubles. On the year he is hitting .452.

Pickett is starting to move up the charts in rankings across the country. The highly projectable big 6-4, 215 LB left handed hitter brings explosive bat speed through the zone, and that was evident in a home run he hit against Highlands Ranch last April which traveled over 450 ft. On the summer circuit Pickett has been making a good name for himself with his explosive bat speed and strong arm.

Pickett made a name for himself this summer, showing his ability with the bat in a few stops across the country. He has a large frame at 6-foot-4, 215 pounds and explosive bat speed through the zone. His strength, bat speed and leveraging swing give him excellent raw power. He is committed to Mississippi State.

Few left-handed hitters in the 2015 class has drawn a bigger buzz than OF/1B Greg Pickett (Legend HS, CO), a 6-foot-4, 220-pound Mississippi State recruit. Pickett, who hits cleanup for Chandler World, has shown big left-handed power over the summer and fall. Against the Chicago Scouts Association, Pickett went 1-for-4 with a single.
