North Oconee HS RHP Bubba Chandler is unlike most prospects in the 2021 MLB Draft. He’s as talented as they come, there’s no doubt about that. But unlike most players in this class, Chandler’s future may not be on the diamond. Indeed, the gridiron may be Chandler’s ultimate calling.
Now, that being said, I wouldn’t be writing this were I not of the opinion Chandler will go pro in baseball. I’m of the belief someone will give the 6-foot-3-inch righty several million reasons to choose baseball over football. Chandler has seen a meteoric rise over the last half-year and he now squarely figures into the first round conversation come July.
