J.T. Ginn, RHP, Brandon HS, MS (Mississippi State)
Joe Gray, OF, Hattiesburg HS, MS (Mississippi)

OTHERS TO WATCH: OF Dexter Jordan (Hattiesburg HS, MS) got his fair share of looks this spring as a teammate to Gray. The Louisiana-Lafayette recruit is strong and athletic with strength at contact. RHP/OF Regi Grace (Madison Central HS, MS) commands the zone with an 88-92 mph fastball and a projectable breaking ball with depth. A Mississippi State recruit, he also has shown to have impact at the plate with his left-handed bat. OF Willie Joe Gary (Pascagoula HS, MS), a Pearl River CC recruit, is twitchy and athletic. He’s a line-drive hitter with bat speed and strength at contact.
