A four-year starter, Barnhart came into the season
with a .415 career batting average. He's signed with
Georgia Tech, which has produced catchers like Jason
Varitek and Matt Wieters.
Johnson hit .558 and drove in 45 runs in just 27
games last season, and the Indiana commit brings
versatility to the field. A natural shortstop, he could
play some outfield at the next level.
The 6-foot-3 righty was overpowering on the mound
in 2008, and he hit .416 with 10 homers and 29 RBIs.
The playoff-tested ace has signed a letter of intent to
Miami of Ohio.
Looking for the next big thing? Then look no further
than Peters, a 5-foot-11 southpaw who can
already hit 90 with his heater. As a freshman, he
went 7-0 with a 0.46 ERA and 78 K's in 45.1 innings.
AN AREA COACH ON DILLON PETERS:
"He's not physically the biggest guy, but he can
bring it. He mostly throws fastballs because that's
all he needs at this point. If no one can catch up to
it, why should he throw anything else?"
