A two-sport star at Dekalb County High in Smithville, Tenn., Jennings tore his ACL while playing quarterback with the football team in the fall yet has made a quick recovery and has been pitching this spring while wearing a knee brace. Clearly athletic, Jennings has a quick, loose arm and projectable frame and has drawn plenty of buzz this spring, with 10 scouting directors in to see a couple of his starts in late April. The righthander ranges anywhere from 90-96 mph with his fastball and throws two different breaking balls, with his mid-80s slider and upper 70s curveball showing above-average to plus potential. Jennings could go as high as the second round and likely won't fall below the third--if he's willing to sign. A firm Mississippi commit, Jennings could also look to build his stock at school. The Ole Miss coaching staff has had recent success at holding onto top recruits, reeling in the country's top class a year ago.
