Leading up to the 2014 MLB Draft, Perfect Game’s staff of scouts will roll out 100 profiles of top high school and college prospects, with one each being posted each weekday. Our figurative leadoff hitter for the 2014 Perfect Game Draft Focus series is also appropriately the current No. 1 prospect in the PG Class of 2014 high school rankings, Georgia outfielder Michael Gettys.

The first thing to note about the 6-foot-2, 205-pound outfielder in the context of the 2014 class is there has not been a high school draft class in many years that so clearly doesn’t have a consensus top prospect less than six months before the draft. Five different players were seriously discussed by the Perfect Game staff before Gettys was elevated to the lead spot, replacing catcher Alex Jackson, after the 2013 PG All-American Classic. In Jupiter at the WWBA World Championship in late October, at least a half dozen national level scouts, including a couple of scouting directors, asked this writer who he thought was the top player but none had a clear opinion of their own.
