A four-year starter, Barnhart came into the season with a .415 career batting average. He's signed with Georgia Tech, which has produced catchers like Jason Varitek and Matt Wieters.

Johnson hit .558 and drove in 45 runs in just 27 games last season, and the Indiana commit brings versatility to the field. A natural shortstop, he could play some outfield at the next level.

The 6-foot-3 righty was overpowering on the mound in 2008, and he hit .416 with 10 homers and 29 RBIs. The playoff-tested ace has signed a letter of intent to Miami of Ohio.

Looking for the next big thing? Then look no further than Peters, a 5-foot-11 southpaw who can already hit 90 with his heater. As a freshman, he went 7-0 with a 0.46 ERA and 78 K's in 45.1 innings.

Coach's Take

"He's not physically the biggest guy, but he can bring it. He mostly throws fastballs because that's all he needs at this point. If no one can catch up to it, why should he throw anything else?"
