    In a thinner than normal Georgia draft class, Waters is the Peach State's top position player prospect. He's a dynamic athlete with an wide variety of tools and ways to impact the game. Waters has a plus arm and the plus speed underway to stay in center field. He's strong and has a broad-shouldered frame at 6-foot-2. Waters's offensive skillset is what really sets him apart. He's a switch-hitter with legitimate power from both sides of the plate. He got off to a very strong start this spring and was launching home runs from both sides of the plate. Even when he doesn't loft the ball over the fence, Waters can hit screaming line drives or hard ground balls that skip through the infield. He's shown a bit of swing-and-miss, sometimes even against suspect competition, but he has the raw elements to develop into at least an average hitter with plus power. He turns in above-average or plus run times on the base paths, and scouts believe he will be a plus runner once he's done maturing. Waters is committed to Georgia, but is expected to be selected somewhere on the first day of the draft. Scouts note his competitive personality and desire to shine on the big stage and in high-leverage situations.
