Round 49: Hunter Cole, OF, Dorman HS (South Carolina)


One sentence analysis:
Hunter is committed to the University of Georgia, and I mean committed.

More analysis and notes:
He's got solid speed and a 90 mph arm. Would have been drafted higher, but he sent a letter to scouts asking that they not draft him, as he is set on going to Georgia.

From Georgia's Official Site, 11/16/10: "'Hunter might be the best hitter in the country, he’s a really good baseball player and an outstanding student,' said (Georgia coach David) Perno. 'We’re going to take a hard look at him as a centerfielder, but he can play anywhere. He has a great approach as a hitter and has the ability to put up huge numbers in college. When you combine his academics and his athletic talent, he’s an exciting prospect.'"

From John Whittle, The Big Spur, 9/2010: "Easily the best power bat in the state of South Carolina. Complete hitter that showed more defensively this summer than he has in the past."

Cole has not signed with the Nationals.
