Top 10 prospects from Jupiter showcase
I covered the four breakout prospects of the WWBA World Championships in the previous post, but in this one I'll go more rapid fire in breaking the best prospects of the event. Most of the top hitters in the class participated, but many of the top arms didn't show due to workload, injuries or football commitments. The players from the last post wouldn't make the top 10, but Josh Hart, Terry McClure and Billy McKinney would all be in the 10-15 range.
1. Austin Meadows, CF, Grayson (Ga.) HS
Fellow Georgia prep center field prospect Clint Frazier didn't come to Jupiter and scouts are split on which prospect is atop their boards. Both can stick in center and the tools are comparable but Meadows is bigger (6-foot-3, 205 pounds) and stronger while Frazier offers better performance. Meadows was okay at the event (3-for-11, triple, stolen base) but had some trouble with off-speed stuff and hard stuff away. The ceiling is still huge and it's way too early to write him off.
