Rose got off to a hot start this spring and led the country in home runs well into the season. He finished the year with 16 home runs, the most in the Sun Belt Conference and fourth most in Georgia State history. Rose already has big righthanded power and could add more as he fills out his 6-foot-4, 195-pound frame. His swing has some length to it, but he's a disciplined hitter and knows how to work a walk. Rose went to Georgia State as a two-way player, but an arm injury limited his time on the mound the last two years. He moved this spring to first base, which may end up being his defensive home as a professional.
