A Clemson commit who shifted to Florida State when former Tigers head coach Jack Leggett departed, Raleigh made a loud first impression with the Seminoles in 2016. The thick-bodied switch-hitter slugged 10 homers and was a BA Freshman All-American that season, but he slipped considerably his sophomore year, batting just .227 and struggling at times defensively. Now in his third season, Raleigh has seemingly rebounded at the plate, with nine homers and a .313/.446/.534 slash line through 176 at-bats. Raleigh has above-average raw power, but his struggles as a sophomore and his lack of track record with a wood bat leave some scouts skeptical he'll be able to consistently tap into it. Raleigh is an average receiver with an average throwing arm. He projects to stick behind the plate at the next level, but his value is primarily tied to his power potential. While his stock isn't as high as it was in 2016, Raleigh's strong junior season has restored at least some of the confidence in his offensive skill set.
