You’re being obtuse on purpose for some reason to create a multi-page argument. That’s not the way people refer to talent levels within the context of the draft. His comment was obviously relative to other draft prospects.
That is the way that MLB teams view talent in college.

No one is debating what you're saying. No one cares.

He was saying the ACC is a high competition level compared to other competition levels in the draft. It is more competitive than the Mountain West or the High School Liberty District.

I would love reading about prospects and every eval is tiered from "low competition level" to "even lower competition level" :lmao:

The last thing to note is an interesting demographic glut of prep hitters in the 20-40 area. There's a big demand for polished position players and a real lack of quality in the college ranks this year, so teams are turning to high schoolers. Some have a strong summer of performance with wood bats against strong competition,

No he wasnt. And scouts do not give a crap about the conference or what other competition was faced. If they did, no high schooler would ever be drafted.

Thank you for proving my point. ESPN knows jack all about baseball and does the minimal to cover it.

Colton Cowser
Sam Houston StateOF
Notes:
Ht: 6-3 | Wt: 195 | B-T: L-R
Commit/Drafted: Never Drafted
Age At Draft: 21.3
RapScore: 50

BA Grade: 55 | Risk: High
Hit: 60 | Power: 50 | Run: 60 | Field: 50 | Arm: 55

In a year where teams are frustrated by the lack of college hitters with lengthy track records of production, Cowser is a rare safe harbor who provides a long history of hitting. He hit .374/.490/.680 as a second-year sophomore with 16 home runs and 17 stolen bases in 20 attempts. He’s hit .354/.460/.608 for his career at Sam Houston State with more walks (78) than strikeouts (70). And he became the first player in school history to play for USA Baseball’s Collegiate National Team when he did so in 2019 after his freshman season, so scouts got to see him against top competition during the summer.

Now I can't unsee it. NOT TOPPER THAN THE MLB ALL STAR TEAM

Maxwell Muncy
Thousand Oaks (Calif.) HSSS
Notes:
Ht: 6-1 | Wt: 170 | B-T: R-R
Commit/Drafted: Arkansas
Age At Draft: 18.7

BA Grade: 55 | Risk: Extreme
Hit: 55 | Power: 55 | Run: 55 | Field: 50 | Arm: 55

Thousand Oaks (Calif.) High has had a number of major leaguers come out of its program, including all-stars Kurt Stillwell and Jack Wilson. Wilson, the former Pirates shortstop, is now head coach at the school and helped Muncy grow into a top draft prospect. Muncy, who is not related to the Dodgers star of the same name, is a high-energy player with an athletic, strong body. He shows above-average hitting ability with a knack for driving the ball the other way and has the strong hands and wrists to project 20-plus home run potential. He studies opposing pitchers, has a mature approach and is rarely overmatched. Muncy tinkered with his stance and swing early this season and struggled, getting disconnected between his upper and lower halves and showing a long swing that was late to velocity, but he returned to his previous setup and swing at the end of the year and re-established himself as one of the top prep hitters in Southern California. He finished the regular season batting .452 with nine home runs while mostly facing good high school competition.

NOT GOOD

Maddux Bruns
UMS-Wright Prep, Mobile, Ala.LHP
Notes:
Ht: 6-2 | Wt: 210 | B-T: L-L
Commit/Drafted: Mississippi State
Age At Draft: 19.1
RapScore: 44

BA Grade: 55 | Risk: Extreme
Fastball: 65 | Curveball: 60 | Slider: 60 | Changeup: 50 | Control: 40

There’s likely not a pitcher in the 2021 class who has as much pure arm talent as Bruns. The 6-foot-2, 210-pound lefthander wowed scouts last summer at Perfect Game’s National Showcase, running his fastball up to 97 mph and flashing two breaking balls that were both plus pitches. At later events it was clear that Bruns’ control and command were well behind his pure stuff, and he struggled not only to hit his spots but to get the ball around the zone. That made him something of an enigma entering the spring, as no one in the industry doubted his pure stuff and upside, but seemingly everyone was scared about his strike-throwing ability and the reliever risk that came with it. Scouts in the South did see better control from Bruns this spring against poor competition,

IT'S ALL POOR COMPARED TO MLB

So "Above Average."
Does that include the Bazooka arm?

Pirates close to signing Davis, which should start the cascade.
