Earlier this year, I provided updates on former Greenbrier High School standout T.D. Davis, who homered in his first collegiate at-bat for Georgia Perimeter Junior College.
The talented freshman has continued his solid play for Georgia Perimeter.
For the season, he is hitting .313 and leads the team with two homers and five doubles. He also has driven in seven runs for the 11-6 Jaguars.
Davis is not the only Columbia County player suiting up for Peach State junior colleges this season. Here is a look at a few other players whose progress we will follow this season.
South Georgia College
Wesley Morris (Harlem), infield
Morris has helped lead South Georgia to a 16-9 record so far this season. The freshman infielder is hitting .316 with one homer and five RBI. He has an on-base percentage higher than .400 and has swiped two bases in two attempts. Morris' former Harlem teammate, Phillip Summers, is also on South Georgia's roster. The lefty pitcher has seen limited duty out of the bullpen.
Also of note, former Westside slugger Logan Gaines plays at South Georgia as well. He is hitting .314 and is second on the team in home runs with three and 18 RBI.
Gordon Junior College
Patrick McGowan (Greenbrier), LHP
McGowan had a solid freshman campaign for Gordon and is the team's top starting pitcher this season. He leads the team in games started (five) and innings pitched (28.1). So far this season he is 2-2 with an ERA of 5.65. Opponents are hitting .241 off the former Wolfpack standout and he has 14 strikeouts. Gordon is 11-10 on the season.
Ryan Hutchins (Lakeside), RHP
Hutchins is considered a pro prospect due to his increased velocity during the past year. He has struggled a bit so far at Gordon. In three appearances he is 0-1 with an ERA of 20.25. However, the freshman has managed to strike out seven batters in just 2.2 innings of work.
