The son of 12-year big leaguer Joe Randa, Jake is a sophomore outfielder at Northwest Florida State JC and one of the top junior college hitters in the country. As a freshman, Randa led the team in most offensive categories and posted a .412/.507/.753 slash line with 13 home runs, 11 doubles and more strikeouts (28) than walks (23). After that, Randa played in the Northwoods League over the summer, hitting .318 with nine home runs in 68 games with a wood bat. He also showed impressive plate discipline, walking 37 times compared to 40 strikeouts. Randa has been impressive with the bat again this spring, slashing .368/.438/.547 with five home runs, 20 strikeouts and 19 walks in 54 games. Scouts see him as an average hitter with above-average power, and he could be drafted somewhere on the middle of Day 2 this June. He could further elevate his profile if he sticks to his Mississippi State commitment and continues to hit at a high level in the SEC. Randa projects as a corner outfielder or first baseman, defensively.
