Grading The Bulldogs

Just as scouts grade prospects using the 20-80 scouting scale, we use a 20-80 scale to evaluate teams in our top 25. A score of 50 in each category is average, relative to a typical NCAA tournament team; 55 is slightly above-average; 60 is above-average (plus); 70 is well above-average (plus-plus); 80 is top of the scale, historically strong. Accordingly, 45 is fringe-average or slightly below-average; 40 is below-average; 30 is well below-average; and 20 is the extreme in that direction.

Hitting: 60

Georgia shortstop Cam Shepherd (Aaron Fitt)

The Bulldogs must replace their top three hitters (Michael Curry, Keegan McGovern and the dismissed Adam Sasser) from a team that ranked sixth in the SEC in batting and scoring. Still, there’s reason to expect Georgia hit just as much as it did a year ago, because this lineup is well stocked with talented veterans who are primed to take steps forward.
