7 212 Pittsburgh Pirates Jake Burnette RHP Ga. $550,000
Georgia Tech's recruiting class has plenty of projectable arms, starting with righthander Jake Burnette, whose older brother Chase played outfield for the Yellow Jackets. He is a lean 6-foot-4, 185-pounder who was a fine high school basketball player, helping Buford reach the state 2-A title game. His frame, long arms and big hands portend his stuff will get a grade better in the future. He has a clean delivery that produces 86-88 mph fastballs and soft curveballs presently. He could take off once he gives up basketball.
