View Draft ReportThe top Alabama high school talents were lefthanders Luke Bole and Charles "C.C." Watson and Auburn signee and righthander Slade Smith. Bole and Watson are both Mississippi State signees, and both are expected to stay true to their college commitments. Watson is 6 feet, 185 pounds, and scouts see little future projection, yet he had a strong spring, winding up as the top player in the state. He throws in the 88-91 mph range and has bumped a bit better at times. He also spins a breaking ball well, a curveball with some power that has helped him to some gaudy strikeout totals, including a 21-strikeout game this spring. His delivery has some effort to it. Both Bole and Watson can hit enough to contend for at-bats as two-way players at Mississippi State.
