OF Quentin Holmes (Monsignor McClancy Memorial HS, NY) has rightfully received the most attention, but because of his following, a teammate has caught the eyes of scouts.Quentin Holmes, OF, Monsignor McClancy Memorial HS, NY
Holmes, a Mississippi State recruit, is wiry and athletic at 6-foot-2, 185 pounds. He is one of the fastest players in the country and floats all over the field. He has a low maintenance set-up at the plate with a wide stance and quiet timing.
