Tampa Bay's Desmond Jennings has been named the Class A South Atlantic League's top prospect by Baseball America.

The center fielder hit .315 with 45 steals and 75 runs scored this season for the league champion Columbus Catfish. He missed the last month with a knee injury.

Pitcher Jeremy Hellickson ranked eighth and outfielder Ryan Royster ninth.

Jennings is from Pinson Valley and is a former Alabama football signee. He played in the AHSAA Class 5A championship series two years ago at Paterson Field and Riverwalk Stadium.
