    The most anticipated prep showdown of the spring wasn't a pitching matchup. Rather it involved Donavan Tate and Auburn football signee Brandon Jacobs of Parkview High. Scouts flocked to see the state's two top athletes and weren't disappointed, as both hit home runs. Jacobs could be a premium pick if he indicated he wants to play baseball. He had not been in touch with Auburn's baseball program at all, so if he goes to college it will be to play football. He has plus raw power and speed that would need time to be harnessed, and he also has a 6-foot-3, 240-pound body that comes to baseball rarely.
