    Coe transferred to Russell County High in hopes of enhancing his stock, and was successful in doing so. He bulked up in the offseason and used his strength to manhandle pitchers to the tune of .455-22-52 with 19 walks and 17 strikeouts. He has above-average bat speed and raw power. Coe's approach is raw, as he's aggressive in all counts and prefers to pull, though he can drive balls to the opposite field when he tries to. Coe's ripped physique worked against him in other phases of his game because his bulk limited his flexibility and his actions are stiff defensively. He'll have to move to second base or perhaps a corner outfield spot. He hit his way into the top 15 rounds of the draft, and he could be a candidate as a draft-and-follow if he opts for a junior college over Georgia.
