The College 300: Preseason 2016
SEE ALSO: Five Breakout Prospects | CHAT: Ask A Question
As the college baseball season nears, scouting directors and their staffs are preparing their follow lists, holding draft meetings, and putting together preliminary ideas on identifying the top prospects in the nation. For the prospects themselves, this spring could be looked at, in some ways, as the final leg of their lengthy evaluation process. Scouting departments cast a wide net this time of year and consider all possibilities from all corners of the draft landscape.
With the college game as strong as ever, there’s also as much depth of professional caliber talent available to scouts as we’ve seen in recent years. This is not to say that the 2016 draft class stacks up with past crops that laid claim to staggering amounts of future big league stars. This is not that sort of class. What this crop is littered with, however, is truckload of potential future quality big leaguers. With that in mind, D1Baseball.com has compiled a list of 300 of the very best prospects that college baseball has to offer, from stars at powerhouse programs like Florida or Vanderbilt to sleepers at little known programs like Cal Baptist and Gulf Coast (Fla.) CC. There is that much quality in college baseball at the moment, and each of these 300 players will receive heavy scouting attention this spring
Much will change as the season gets underway, and with a list of 300 players, there will be significant variation of opinion. This list represents a consensus obtained through thorough research, polling coaches and scouts from all parts of the country, and a heavy influence from the scouting observations of our lead writers Frankie Piliere, Aaron Fitt, and Kendall Rogers.
Throughout the spring, you can track the progress of all of these top 300 college prospects right here, as well as keep tabs on newly emerging talent that are sure to jump on the radar screen as the spring progress.
