18 545 Baltimore Orioles Brad Roney 3B Ala.
Two other hitters who could get picked include Golden's teammate, third baseman Brad Roney, and outfielder Jo-El Bennett. Roney is part of a strong Southern Mississippi recruiting class. He's a solid athlete who has present strength and hitting skills, and his above-average arm and agility should allow him to step in and play third as a freshman in Conference USA. He's raw at the plate but has excellent leverage in his swing and plus raw power. As Roney fills out his 6-foot-2, 190-pound frame, he may lose athleticism and get too stiff.
