Travis Demeritte
Winder Barrow

IF
Wesley Jones
Redan
Senior
The 6-foot-2 shortstop led Redan to its first state title, homering in the clinching game against Marist. A Georgia signee, he was drafted by the Colorado Rockies.

OF
Clint Frazier
Loganville
Senior
The Gatorade National Player of the Year, Frazier was selected fifth in the 2013 MLB Draft. He hit .485 with a state-best 17 home runs, 45 RBIs and 56 runs scored as a senior, capping one of the most successful careers in state history.

OF
Josh Hart
Parkview
Senior
Lefty center fielder hit .434 with five homers and 39 runs scored as a senior. He was selected by the Orioles in the sandwich round (No. 37 overall) of the MLB Draft.

OF
Jacob Heyward
Eagles Landing
Senior
The younger brother of Jason Heyward can’t help but be compared to his sibling, but after being drafted by the Braves, Jacob will forge his own path at the University of Miami. He hit .333 with nine homers and 42 RBIs as a senior.

OF
Austin Meadows
Grayson
Senior
Pick No. 9 by the Pirates in the 2013 MLB Draft, Meadows is a five-tool lefty who hit .535 with four homers, 28 RBIs and 29 runs scored for the Rams as a senior. Also stole 17 bases and put up a gaudy .633 on-base percentage.

Robert Tyler
Crisp County (Cordele)
A Perfect Game and Louisville Slugger All-American, Tyler went 8-1 with a 1.99 ERA, fanning 64 batters in 56 innings and driving in 39 runs in 32 games. He was drafted by the Baltimore Orioles.

UT
Nathaniel Lowe
Pope
Slugger was named to the prestigious Braves 400 Metro Atlanta All-Star squad after leading the Greyhounds to the AAAAA state championship. Ever clutch, his biggest moment was a walk-off grand slam in the finals.

UT
Stephen Wrenn
Walton
The 6-foot-2 right uses his speed to steal bases and cover ground in center field, and he was also a three-year starter on the hill for the Raiders. The son of Braves GM Frank Wren, both Stephen and older brother Kyle (Ga. Tech) were taken by Atlanta in the MLB Draft.
