    Weathers, who hails from Quitman, Miss., posted a 5-1 record in 17 appearances as a freshman last year with a 2.48 ERA and two saves. He struck out 47 and opponents hit only .221 against him. He also had offers from Alabama and Auburn.

    OF - Wendell Fairly 6-2, 175lbs, George County (Miss.) HS

    As a junior last season, he hit .451 with seven doubles, six triples, six home runs and had 31 RBIs. He was 20-of-20 in the stolen base category, had a .551 on-base percentage and an .857 slugging percentage. He was 5-4 with a 2.07 ERA in 50.2 innings pitched. He struck out 68 batters, pitched two shutouts and had five complete games to his credit and held opponent hitters to a .175 batting average.

    As a sophomore, Fairley hit .404 with eight doubles, seven triples, seven home runs and 40 RBIs. He finished with 12-of-13 stolen bases, had an on-base percentage of .529 and a slugging percentage of .817. He finished with a 1-1 record with three saves and a 0.39 ERA in 14 innings pitched.
