Peter and Carlos hop on the BA draft podcast to talk about the prospects to know in the college world series. How does this year’s field compare to a fantastic 2023 group and how much is there for a player like UNC’s Vance Honeycutt to gain or lose on the sport’s biggest stage? The two talk through why Honeycutt’s profile is so tricky, and think through the player development challenges that his hit tool questions create. After that the two talk through a few other CWS prospects, wonder how Braden Montgomery’s injury affects his stock (if it does at all) and talk about a pair of late-season draft risers to know—one high school shortstop and one college shortstop.
