Round 14: Jordan Poole, 1B/OF, Chipola JC (FL)

(via Dustin Kent/Jackson County Floridian)

Ole Miss Bio

Sean's one sentence analysis: Josh Smoker's high school teammate hit .340/.425/.573 this season and has some intriguing power potential from the right side of the plate.

Other analysis and notes: Attended Calhoun HS in Georgia with Nats farmhand LHP Josh Smoker and spent a season at Ole Miss before transferring to Chipola JC, presumably over playing time concerns. Despite only being 20 years old, Poole was sent to Auburn after signing and is hitting .297/.341/.405 in his first 42 PA of pro ball. Strikes out way too much, and will have to cut down on the K's if he wants to move higher in pro ball.

Lydia Senn of the Calhoun Times had an interview with Poole during his senior year of high school in 2010 (full story here)

Chase Parham of Rebel Grove (and had a nice story about Poole, his break-out end of the 2011 season for Ole Miss, and the role his family plays in his game.
