RR Community Prospect Rankings: SEC speed is coming to the midwest

New, 129 comments


Congratulations to Billy Hamilton for taking the #4 prospect title. As some of you know, B-Snax was recruited to be a wide receiver at Mississippi State, but gave up the scholarship to join the Reds organization. (Not like they would've needed him against Michigan last week. Sheesh)

Hamilton should start the year in Dayton, and I encourage those of you who live in the area to go check him out at some point. He may or may not end up not being all that, but he can definitely fly. Should be fun to watch this year in his first full season.

For the #5 vote today you don't get anyone new, and you'll like it! Expect a few more choices on Monday, but for now, happy voting!

Juan Francisco, 3B
