2013 Draft Profile Austin Meadows

First Look Austin Meadows
OF/ 1B Grayson, Georgia
6' 3"     200 Lbs.
Bats: Left      Throws: Right
Committed to Clemson

When the draft rolls around this June, Austin Meadows will almost certainly be among the discussion to go 1-1. Meadows has legitimate five-tool potential and is an elite athlete. Already 6'3" and 200 Lbs., Meadows looks like a big-leaguer at just 17. Meadows is a burner on the base pads; his best 60 time was clocked as 6.31 seconds. At the plate, Meadows projects to hit for both power and average. He has lightning-quick hands, and a short stoke that enables him to generate excellent bat speed. While his swing seems easy and smooth, the ball really explodes off his bat. He has good range in center, but  his size he will probably limit him to a corner spot at the next level. This season he will battle fellow Georgia outfielder Clint Frazier, his practical neighbor, as the top prep player taken in the draft.
