McCarty and third baseman/righthander Taylor Braley teamed at Oak Grove High in Hattiesburg, Miss., winning a pair of state titles before moving on to Southern Mississippi. Together, they helped lead the Golden Eagles to this season's Conference USA regular-season title and a regional host spot. Owner of a 22-4 career record, McCarty is smallish (5-foot-10, 185 pounds) but commands a fringy 88-91 mph fastball to both sides of the plate. His calling card is his ability to spin a tight breaking ball, an above-average curve that he can throw for strikes or get hitters to chase for strikeouts. He also spots an average changeup and had a solid, short Cape Cod League stint, getting him in front of national evaluators.
