Billy Amick (Tennessee)
21 y.o / RHH / 3B

Amick has largely repeated his 2023 campaign in which he was one of the best hitters in the country. He has a simple but thunderous operation that results in him launching balls in the air to all fields. It's the kind of power profile scouts dream of.

Amick makes enough contact and has managed very respectable strikeout rates throughout his college career. As far as his track record with wood goes, it helps that he tore up the Cape Cod league last summer. Though it's worth noting his 2022 sample wasn't nearly as strong there. His swing decisions leave a bit to be desired and like White, Amick can be over-aggressive at times.

Also similar to White, Amick is seen as a fringe fit at third base long term by many scouts. He has looked better there this year and there are some that are convinced he has a good shot to stick there long term. Playing third base would make his offensive package significantly more enticing. Right now he's behind the other names on this list but his power package and track record in a strong conference does grab my attention as one worth watching.
