USA Baseball on Wednesday unveiled the second set of matchups for the 2016 National High School Invitational.

North Broward Prep (Pompano Beach, Fla.) will take on Rocky Mountain High (Fort Collins, Colo.), and Houston High (Germantown, Tenn.) will face Allatoona High (Acworth, Ga.) in the tournament at the USA Baseball National Training Complex in Cary, N.C., from March 23-26.

North Broward ranked as the No. 6 team in this year’s High School preseason rankings. They are led by three Miami commits in their rotation. Anthony Masiello, Evan McKendry and Greg Veliz give the Eagles arguably the best rotation in the tournament. Rocky Mountain has won five state championships over the past nine years, and it will look to junior shortstop John Sorenson for contributions on offense and defense.

Houston shortstop Jack Kenley, an Arkansas commit, brings solid all-around tools, and he’s surrounded by a fundamentally sound squad that could give Allatoona trouble. Allatoona could be a dark horse in the tournament, with junior outfielder Kyle Jacobsen leading a group of six Division I commits.
