Mack Draft: - Nick Martini, Grayson Garvin, Noe Ramirez, Dylan White, and Barrett Barnes

Nick Martini: - A strong Freshman campaign led Martini to be named Preseason First Team All-Big 12 from Baseball America. Martini improved his efficiency dramatically in the 2010 season, increasing his batting average from .336 to .416, which led the Big 12, and his OPS from .899 to 1.094. Much of that was a result of his plate discipline, as he was able to cut his strikeouts in half from 41 to 21 and upped his walks from 27 to 41. Along with all this, he hit 4 HR and 59 RBI as the Wildcats everyday center fielder. He set the Kansas State record with a 26-game hitting streak from February 27th to April 11th, and was named the 2010 Big 12 Player of the Year, as well as a 2nd team All-American by the ABCA. Kansas State ended their season losing to Washington State at the Fayetteville Regional, where Martini went 5-8 with a double, home run, and 6 RBi in the final two contests. Martini kept his momentum going by playing for the Falmouth Commodores of the Cape Cod League, where he hit .257 with 2 home runs and 21 RBI while stealing 10 bases in 140 at bats, and was named a Third team Preseason All-American by the NCBWA for 2011. - http://www.collegebaseballdaily.com/2010/12/25/nick-martni-kansas-state-top-100-countdown/?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=feed&utm_campaign=Feed%3A+CollegeBaseballDaily+%28College+Baseball+Daily%29&utm_content=Twitter

Grayson Garvin: - We continue the countdown today at number 30 with Vanderbilt junior LHP Grayson Garvin. The Suwanee, Georgia, native attended high school at the Wesleyan School where he was a four year letter winner including being a starter in each of his final three seasons. He helped lead the team to the Regional Championship in 2007 and 2008 while helping them go to the State Final Four in 2006-08 and winning the 2008 State title. He picked up several awards during his career including being named the 2007, 2008 Region Player of the Year, 2008 Rawlings and Louisville Slugger All-American, Sports Illustrated/ Takkle Top 100, a member of the 2007 Gwinnett Dugout Club 1st team and 2008 Gwinnett Dugout Club Pitcher of the Year. He was selected by the Houston Astros in the 45th round of the 2008 MLB Draft but decided to hold true to his commitment to Vanderbilt - http://www.collegebaseballdaily.com/  

Noe Ramirez: - We continue the countdown today at number 31 with junior RHP Noe Ramirez from Cal-State Fullerton. The East Los Angeles, California native attended Alhambra High School where he won four letters. He had a career record of 27-7 with an ERA under 2.00 and 298 career strikeouts while being named a four-time all-league member while bringing the school to four straight league championships. He was also an accomplished hitter never hitting below .350 while having a batting average of .511 as a senior. He decided to continue his college career at Cal-State Fullerton. - http://www.collegebaseballdaily.com/  

Dylan White: - After attending over 15 different major events this summer, Prospect Wire has unveiled their Top 50 2013 Prospects in Florida. 1. Dylan White is the easy #1 as the monster lefty can already run it up to 90 and spin a breaking ball. Left-handed hitting catcher Ronnie Healy has an absolute cannon behind the plate, possibly the best arm we've ever seen for a catcher his age. Healy hit a towering bomb in the Junior Olympics on an up and in pitch and has shown the power arm/powerbat combo you look for in the premium position.- http://www.prospectwire.com/pw/article.php?id=189

Barrett Barnes: - We continue the countdown today at number 32 with Texas Tech sophomore outfielder Barrett Barnes. He is a 2009 graduate of Class 5A Fort Bend High School in Austin, Texas where earned varsity letters in baseball and was coached by Randy Ursery and Kenneth Sharp. He was named First-Team All-District for his senior season. Barnes made an immediate impact in the Red Raiders lineup starting all 57 games last season. He ended up leading the team with a .341 batting average while hitting 14 homers and driving in 53 runs. He also chipped in with 12 stolen bases in 15 attempts. He was named the Big 12 Conference Freshman of the Year and a member of the All-Big 12 Second Team. He was also named to multiple Freshman All-American teams including Baseball America First Team, Louisville Slugger, and Pro-LineAthletic/NCBWA. - http://www.collegebaseballdaily.com/2010/12/22/barrett-barnes-texas-tech-top-100-countdown
