Rodon #1, Turner #4 In Baseball America Draft Rankings

Just how good is NC State baseball? Well, according to Baseball America they have two of the top give players in college.

In an article listing the 2014 draft class, BA (which is one of the most trusted baseball publications) has Carlos Rodon #1 overall and Trea Turner at #4 (and #1 position player). That’s pretty impressive, but not unexpected with the level of production those two have put up over the past two seasons.

Here is what BA had to say about Rodon:

1. Carlos Rodon, lhp, N.C. State: Could have ranked No. 1 in previous two draft classes with a 93-95 mph fastball and premium slider.

and here is what they had to say about Turner:

4. Trea Turner, ss, N.C. State: Ankle issue hampered him in 2013, but he offers bat speed, athleticism and top-of-the-scale speed when healthy.

The good news is that everyone at NC State has one more season to see these two studs play before they embark on their journey to the bigs.
