2023 MLB DRAFT: Jake DeLeo, OF — Georgia Tech

A multi-time member of the All-ACC Academic Honor Roll team, DeLeo has done more than just produce in the classroom. The Georgia Tech outfielder produced a monster junior year in helping the Yellow Jackets reaching the College World Series this year, hitting .366 with 14 homers and 52 RBI while putting up career highs in other important categories like walks, stolen bases and doubles.

FSS Event History: DeLeo was one of the standouts on the Dirtbags during the 2019 National Tournaments, memorably smacking a no-doubt homer to his pull side. A no-brainer invite to the ensuing International Week event that was set for its first time at Fenway Park later that year, he kept that run going, reaching base a stunning six times over the three game series.

Joe Doyle on DeLeo:

DeLeo was a big draft prospect in 2020, but went undrafted in a truncated 5-round draft, sending his talents to Georgia Tech. He does a little bit of everything well. DeLeo works up the middle of the field and has a keen eye at the plate. There’s not a ton of swing and miss in his game, but he can get in trouble at times being too passive at the dish. There’s solid raw power here, and some projection left too. Deleo could project into either corner outfield role and flirt with 20-homer seasons as a pro. DeLeo has a long, athletic body and his best baseball is ahead of him after being dinged up the first two seasons at Georgia Tech.
