South Florida home to 2 of the nation's top 10 baseball prospects

RISE Magazine released its top 50 high school prospects list this week.

Braddock shortstop Harold Martinez and American Heritage pitcher/first baseman Eric Hosmer each made the top 5.

Hosmer (6-4, 210), an Arizona State commit, is ranked 3rd and teammate, catcher Adrian Nieto, a South Florida commit, is ranked No. 18.

Martinez, a commit to UM, is ranked No. 4 and figures to be a 1st-round pick. He will likely be the highest Dade player selected since former Hialeah pitcher Gio Gonzalez was a 1st round sandwich pick three years ago.
