Rhymes has hit his way up draft boards and to the Southeastern Conference's player of the year award. Originally cut from LSU's program, he transferred to LSU-Eunice JC, helping the team win the Division II NJCAA championship. He transferred back to LSU after that one season and has done nothing but hit since arriving, though he did have a detour for Tommy John surgery in the middle. He also gave up his scholarship this year so the Tigers could recruit other players. The 6-foot, 180-pound righthanded hitter has a poor profile if he's just a left fielder, though some scouts would like to try him back at second base, where he's dabbled in the past. He's short to the ball, selective and strong enough to drive the ball consistently, resulting in a national-best .469 average. His .458 mark in SEC play was more than 100 points better than his closest pursuer.
