NICK FRANKLIN
Last year, Franklin hit .483 with six homers and 32 RBIs as Lake Brantley captured the Class 6A state title. He has played for the USA Youth National Team and was a 2008 Under Armour All-American.

MYCHAL GIVENS
Rated No. 4 in the ESPNU senior prospect rankings, Givens took home the Jackie Robinson Award as the nation's top player at last summer's Aflac All- American High School Baseball Game.

A.J. COLE
Arguably the top junior in the state and one of the top Class of 2010 hurlers in the nation, Cole is a big (6-5), powerful (low 90s) righty who played for the USA Youth National Team in 2007.

KEYVIUS SAMPSON
Sampson, a 2008 Aflac All-American, is the nation's No. 19 recruit in the ESPNU prospect rankings. The 6-foot-1 righty went 10-2 with a 1.49 ERA and 123 K's in just 71 innings last spring.

Coach's Take

AN AREA COACH ON BEN BROWN:
"Great demeanor with a 90-plus arm. He's got great mound presence. He throws three pitches for strikes and all of them are quality. He's very athletic."
