Mack: Alright, now we’re really heading out and up west to Spanish Forks H.S. (Utah) where we will find RHP Brady Corless. Hey Brady. Getting ready for the season?
Brady - Well Mack, I've decided to forgo my senior year and attend SLCC (Salt Lake Community College) so I getting ready by doing the workouts with my team. I've been hitting the weight room a lot and excited to see where it's going to take me.
Mack – I heard that. When will this make you draft eligible?
Brady - I'm now eligible for the draft every year.
Mack – Which, I assume, is still before you play a game for SLCC?
Brady - I'll be eligible my freshmen year and sophomore year at SLCC.
Mack – There obviously is going to be comparisons to what Bryce Harper did in the past. Was the decision based on your expertise level in high school, the desire to be eligible for the draft earlier, or all of the above?
Brady - I get that there is going to be comparisons. I'm not trying to be Bryce Harper. I made this move because I feel like I’m going to grow as a player here and being around the players in the SLCC baseball program is going to push me we have one of the top programs in the nation and DG Nelson (my head coach) is going to get me to where I want to be. I just don't see the down fall to the move.
Mack – Well, Brady, if I’m reading this correctly, you will be eligible for the June 2013 draft, which makes you important to me, regardless of where you are playingJ. A new subject I ask everyone. Take us back to that first day someone put either a bat, ball, or glove in your hands and walk us through what got you to where you are today.
