Mathis was showcased this spring as Horne's catcher, and he had no problem handling Horne's quality stuff. Also a high school quarterback, the 6-foot-1, 175-pound Mathis is rangy and athletic behind the plate. Some college recruiters think he could handle just about any position, even shortstop, and he has thrown 91-92 mph off the mound. He'll have to move if he attends Florida State, which already has Tony Richie behind the plate. Mathis is a better hitter than Dini but isn't as strong at this point.
