    Little known out of high school in Horn Lake, Miss., just south of Memphis, Reed was an all-conference freshman in junior college, tossing a no-hitter and striking out 65 in 64 innings. Still, he wasn't drafted after pitching at 87-89 mph with his fastball. After going 8-2, 2.15 with 93 strikeouts for Northwest Mississippi this season, he could go in the top 50-100 picks thanks to improved velocity. Reed's stuff is raw but his arm strength is undeniable. Big and physical at a listed 6-foot-5, 220 pounds, he'll pop 94-95 mph heaters in the early innings before settling in at 88-92. He also has shown better aptitude this season, cleaning up his delivery to help his arm work easier. His slider and changeup are rudimentary at this point, but he's athletic and coordinated and has shown enough ability to spin it to get scouts to believe in him in a down draft year. Committed to Mississippi, Reed is considered signable, which also could push him up draft boards.
