Jesuit's McCullers, King's Barnum highlight ESPNHS's preseason All-State team

ESPNHS is the latest national outlet to highlight Hillsborough County’s finest on the diamond.

In its pre-season all-state baseball team, ESPNHS named Jesuit P Lance McCullers, a Florida signee expected to be among the top picks of the upcoming June MLB draft, and King 1B Keon Barnum, a Miami commit, as two of the top 20 players in the state. The rankings were determined by a combination of in-season performance and recruit rankings.

Sixteen additional local players were sweet enough to make the “other top players” list:

Peter Alonso, Plant, IF, Jr.

Gerald Bautista, Steinbrenner, 3B, Sr. (Florida)

Max Beerman, Jesuit, 1B/P, Sr. (Villanova)

Marc Brakeman, Shorecrest, P, Sr. (Stanford)

Adrian Chacon, Jesuit, P, Jr. (North Carolina)

Tyler Danish, Durant, 3B, Jr. (Florida)

Nathan Hahn, Alonso, RHP, Sr. (South Florida)

Jimmy Herget, Jefferson, RHP, Sr. (South Florida)

John Kilichowski, Jesuit, P/1B, Jr. (Vanderbilt)

Richie Martin, Bloomingdale*, IF, Sr. (Florida)

Dexture McCall, Middleton, 3B, Sr.

Oscar Mercado, Gaither, SS, Jr. (Florida State)

Trey Oest, Durant, P, Senior (Virginia)

Corbin Olmstead, Jefferson, 3B/P, Sr. (North Florida)

Richie Rivera, St. Petersburg, OF, So.

Nolan Schultz, Jesuit, C, Sr. (Rochester)

Spencer Trayner, Jesuit, 3B/P, Jr. (North Carolina)

Ryan Valdes, Alonso, OF/P, Sr. (Florida State)
