Ryan Weathers, LHP, Loretto HS, TN (Vanderbilt)

Ryder Green, OF, Karns HS, TN (Vanderbilt)

OTHERS TO WATCH: SS Drew Benefield (Siegel HS, TN) has a projectable 6-foot-3, 185-pound frame with present power to all fields and above average bat speed. The Louisville recruit will likely shift off of shortstop, but moves well with a strong arm with carry through the target. RHP Ethan Smith (Mt. Juliet HS, TN) showed a 92-94 mph fastball with easy, repeatable mechanics and a loose arm. The Vanderbilt recruit also features a projectable 6-foot-3, 180-pound frame with present fastball command. SS Tate Kolwyck (Arlington HS, TN) has bat speed with the ability to drive the ball over the field. He is committed to Vanderbilt. RHP Seth Caldwell (Oak Ridge HS, TN) is a projection play, a super athletic 6-foot-5, 190-pounder with feel for spinning an above average 71-73 curveball and a fastball up to 90. He is committed to Walters State CC. RHP Andrew Lindsey (Waverly HS, TN) has a projectable 6-foot-4, 185-pound frame with a fastball up to 92 and shows feel for two secondary pitches and a lot of untapped potential. OF Hunter Goodman (Arlington HS, TN), a Memphis recruit, features premium pull power from the right side.
