Robbie Sovie, of

School: Stratford Academy. Class: Sr.
Hometown: Macon, Ga.
B-T: R-R Ht.: 6-1 Wt.: 195 Birthdate: 11/24/83
College Commitment: Western Carolina.
Scouting Report: Outfielders Jeremy Hermida and Jeff Francouer aren't the only athletic outfielders who attracted scouts to Georgia. Sovie starred as a running back/safety at Stratford Academy, winning two 3-A state championships, and excelled in track. Timed at 6.3 seconds in the 60-yard dash, he's the fastest legitimate prospect in the draft. Amazingly, he didn't lose speed after missing all of the 2001 baseball season following reconstructive knee surgery. Little known in baseball before 2002, he has center-field ability and raw power to go with his wheels. Sovie is learning to hit and has taken up switch-hitting to better use his speed, and he has a below-average arm. After accepting a football scholarship from Western Carolina, he may commit to Middle Georgia JC to keep his baseball options open.
