That could have been where I've heard of it as well. I believe they are playing in the Kirk Herbstreit classic this year.

The show also features Ross Wilson as the QB just after John Parker left to go to Alabama.

1 15 Devin Mesoraco c Punxsutawney (Pa.) HS PA
As strong as this year's high school class was considered at the outset of the season, it got even better when high school righthanders Jarrod Parker and Nevin Griffith and Mesoraco came out of the gate showing better tools and ability than they had last summer and fall. Griffith and Mesoraco appeared in showcases, but they didn't show impact potential until this spring, and Mesoraco has been the biggest riser of them all. An arm injury led to Tommy John surgery when he was a sophomore, and he was relegated to DH duties as a junior. His arm strength has slowly returned, and this spring he has shown a 70 arm with quick, efficient releases. Defensively, Mesoraco compares favorably to 2001 Angels first-rounder Jeff Mathis, with athleticism serving as the foundation of an agile, quick-twitch player who receives and blocks exceptionally well. He shows above-average bat speed and 50-55 power at the plate. He's a solid-average runner, too, rounding out a legitimate five-tool package that probably won't make it out of the first round.

Np Mario. Reds drafted lots of players named Jordan lol.

Patrick Bateman

4 Canadians. Very nice.

I actually see this is the Reds are putting more effort into looking in different locations. It probably shows that some of these players in different locations are undervalued by other teams who don't research places like Canada, and the Reds may be getting some better players with the unheralded guys.

Nice to see.
