Savannah State SR 1B Charles (Tre) Sikes has some serious power upside and a strong track record of hitting for extra bases. He’ll be an interesting option for a team looking to toe the line between affordable yet still promising. I’m not sure how much power Coppin State JR 1B/OF George Dragon has, but his hit tool is solid and he has no problem taking a walk. Also, his name is George Dragon.

Delaware State has a pair of potentially draftable middle infielders in JR 2B/SS Cameron Onderko and SR SS/RHP David Kimbrough. Onderko impressed in limited time last year while Kimbrough has the athleticism and arm to stick at short at the next level. Fellow Hornet rSR OF Charles Dailey might have enough in the way of a hit tool to get a late look. Savannah State SR OF David Richards is an exceptional athlete with pop, speed, and more than enough glove for center. His approach has gone backwards so far this year, but the tools are intriguing. Much of the same could be said for Florida A&M SR OF Marlon Gibbs, a similar athlete with bat speed and an up-and-down approach.

The MEAC has about a half-dozen arms that look like high follows entering the spring. Most, if not all, profile as professional relievers going forward. I like North Carolina Central JR RHP Andrew Vernon most of all with his size (6-4, 180), sinking 88-92 fastball, and above-average slider. Bethune-Cookman rSR RHP Keith Zuniga has a similar sinker/slider blend and Savannah State SR RHP Brandon Whitmore gets by with a 86-90 FB (93 peak) and a solid splitter.
