    New Mexico JC's top prospect is outfielder Jordan Buckley. The 6-foot-1, 165-pound Buckley is a former wide receiver at Blinn (Texas) JC, and this was his first season focusing solely on baseball. He entered the year expecting to be a fourth outfielder, but ended up starting in right field after the team's regular right fielder went down. He's raw but is a great athlete that scouts can dream on. He has the speed to play center field, and he has an above-average arm. At the plate, Buckley swings and misses a lot, but he has a quick bat and shows power potential. He has a lot of tools but will need time to develop. If he doesn't sign, Baylor has shown interest in him, though he had not made a commitment.
