Two Future Buckeyes in Florida State Championship

Section B and the Florida State fans are already proving to be generous and amazing hosts.

After posting on their message board I was e-mailed by a Seminole fan with this interesting bit of news.

For those unaware Ohio State's 2010 incoming freshman class will include two baseball players from the heart of Seminole land. Cole Brown and Hunter Mayfield are currently seniors at Chiles High in Tallahassee.

Chiles will be in the 5A Florida State Championship tomorrow night.

Here's a link Chile's High team picture with Brown and Mayfield.

Chile's has the best website I have ever seen for a high school, and a lot better than most colleges.

Here's the player pages for our two Buckeyes.

Mayfield Profile

It goes without saying Assistant Coach Pete Jenkins played a huge role in getting these two to spend their future in the Buckeye State opposed to the Sunshine.

Hopefully the current Bucks can put on a show for Brown and Mayfield, and good luck to them and Chiles High in the Florida State Championship.

Yes that is a awsome web site for a High School team. I hope they are great additions to the team next year. Nice to know some of the (incoming freshman players) for next fall.

Chris ... thanks for the info. Mayfield has some decent #s (.380, 11 SBs). Cole Brown looks like a 'project' (9.33 ERA , 2 starts , 3 IPs if I read his line right? Also 5 ABs). Any in State potentials?

Found out that Brown will be having surgery. So I wouldn't take his #'s too seriously, he obviously was having issues.

There is 6'8 pitcher from Strongsville, OH that is supposed to be one of, if not the top pitcher in the state. Forget his name however.
