#24 Hunter Renfroe, Baseball Outfielder (2011-2013)

Hunter Renfroe was a good baseball player, but his junior season is the reason Renfroe made this list. Renfroe displayed elite level talent in his final season with the Mississippi State Bulldogs. He led the team in homeruns and RBIs in 2013 and was a terror to opposing pitchers. The most important homerun in his illustrious career came in Omaha against Oregon State. With the Bulldogs and Beavers in a tight game with a berth in the National Championship on the line, Renfroe blasted one of just a handful of homeruns into the left field bullpen to put the Bulldogs up for good. Renfroe was as good as they came in 2013. He was a consensus First Team All-American, and a Player of the Year Candidate. Hunter Renfroe was drafted in the first round of the Amateur Draft. There is a good chance he makes the Major League Team in 2016.
