Clay Dirks, lhp

School: Hernando HS. Class: Sr.
Hometown: Hernando, Miss.
B-T: L-L Ht.: 6-4 Wt.: 230 Birthdate: 7/28/84
College Commitment: Louisiana State.
Scouting Report: Dirks stands head and shoulders above the rest of Mississippi's high school pitchers, and he has held that status for a while. He first appeared on the state prep scene as a 13-year-old eighth-grader, striking out 15 in five innings when a roster shortage pressed him into duty. He's already huge at 6-foot-4 and 230 pounds, and his large hands and fingers help him spin a plus power curveball. He has thrown as hard as 92 mph, and has good command and feel for pitching. Dirks also plays first base and the outfield and has tape-measure power. One of Louisiana State's top recruits, he's expected to be drafted by the end of the third round.
