In North Carolina, 2018 RHP Owen White (Carson HS, NC) committed to South Carolina. The No. 1 prospect in the state, White is ranked sixth in the Overall Rankings. He’s a three-sport athlete and stands at 6-foot-3, 185 pounds. He has a quick arm and has run his fastball up to 94 mph. His slider is an out pitch with hard, late tilt at 76-80. In his second start of the 2017 season, he threw a no-hitter.
