Jacob Gatewood SS - HS
Bryson Brigman SS - HS
Matt Chapman SS - Cal State Fullerton
Montrell Marshall SS - HS
Tate Blackman SS - HS
Justin Smith OF - HS
Sean Newcomb LHP - Hartford
Kyle Schwarber C/1B - Indiana - local kid and as a bonus, I'm going to his sister's wedding next month
Alex Jackson C - HS
Grayson Greiner C - S.Carolina
Connor Lynch C - Ga.Tech
Will be fun to revisit this list next June.
Couple other names to add to the list (why not, it's only 10 months out!):
Ti'quan Forbes HS SS, Nick Gordon HS SS and Marcus Wilson HS OF
Those three, along with shortstops Trea Turner, Jacob Gatewood, Montrell Marshall and HS catcher Alex Jackson are the top seven guys I'd love to see in Red. Carlos Rodon and Tyler Beede seem to be the consensus top two guys (both pitchers), so barring injury or meltdown it seems unlikely that they would fall out of the top half of the first round. That said, in 10 months a lot stranger things have happened.
