5 from MLB.com Top 50 to attend NHSI

The participating teams for USA Baseball’s second annual National High School Invitational were announced today. It was a fantastic event that we covered fully in 2012, with stories, video and game broadcasts (some of which can be viewed in archive). The 2012 champions, Mater Dei, will be returning. Here’s the field:

Bingham High School (South Jordan, Utah)
Cathedral Catholic High School (San Diego)
Christian Brothers High School (Memphis, Tenn.)
Eustis High School (Eustis, Fla.)
Florida Christian School (Miami)
Grayson High School (Loganville, Ga.)
Hamilton High School (Chandler, Ariz.)
Harvard-Westlake School (Studio City, Calif.)
Jenks High School (Jenks, Okla.)
Lexington High School (Lexington, S.C.)
Mater Dei High School (Santa Ana, Calif.)
Milton High School (Milton, Ga.)
T.C. Roberson High School (Asheville, N.C.)
The Woodlands High School (The Woodlands, Texas)
Tullahoma High School (Tullahoma, Tenn.)
Venice High School (Venice, Fla.)

From the group of 16 schools, there are five members on MLB.com’s early 2013 Draft Top 50 Prospects list. They are:

3 Austin Meadows, OF, Grayson
12 Stephen Gonsalves, LHP, Cathedral Catholic
30 Chris Okey, C, Eustis
41 Nick Ciuffo, C, Lexington
50 Jeremy Martinez, C, Mater Dei

There are a number of other exciting high school prospects who will attend, many of whom will likely land on MLB.com’s Top 100 overall list in the spring. Some other “names to know” who will be in Durham, NC, March 27-30 for the tournament:

Jordan Sheffield, RHP, Tullahoma
Nick Longhi, OF, Venice
Ryan McMahon, 3B, Mater Dei

Looking forward to checking out this tournament for the second straight year.
