TN Scouting Director

The 2024 high school baseball season is quickly approaching and as usual, excitement abounds throughout the state. Players and coaches have been working in preparation for the upcoming season and, as is the case each year, there are some very talented players and teams across Tennessee.

Teams across the state have goals and aspirations to finish their seasons in Murfreesboro at The Spring Fling as they compete for a state championship, but there is plenty of work to be done before that becomes reality. We hope to familiarize our readers with many of the teams across the state as we preview individual teams across Tennessee. We will take you right up to first pitch this season with these team previews and by continuing other pieces of content covering the Volunteer State.

Please keep checking back throughout the season as we will be your one-stop shop for everything related to high school baseball across the state. Each week we will be releasing our players of the week, updating the Power 25 and much more.

*Please note the information has been gathered from head coaches across the state, based on their replies to the questionnaire we distributed over this offseason.

High School: Greeneville 
Head Coach: Andy Collins
Classification: AAA
District + Region Number: District 2 + Region 1
2023 Record (Finish): 36-4




    The Greeneville Devils are coming into the 2024 spring season with high expectations again after claiming the TSSAA 3A state title in 2023 over perennial powerhouse Upperman and finishing with an outstanding record of 36-4. This season they look to repeat as they return a plethora of talent with 8 returning starters and 4 pitchers that saw meaningful innings. It is safe to say that the Devils are experienced and battle tested with their entire defense returning to fold and their lineup pretty much intact. They also aren't senior heavy either with the meat of their talent consisting in the 2025 class. Sophomore OF/MIF Maddox Bishop who looks to take over centerfield primarily, while being back in the leadoff spot where he started 40 games a season ago in route to being nominated for the TSSAA Super Freshman team where he hit .372 with 28 stolen bases. In the 3-hole, you have no other than do it all Virginia Tech commit Carson Quillen who went 7 shutout innings in the state title game last season to win 1-0. He is coming off a very impressive season that saw him rack up accolades after accolades such as the TBCA 3A player of the year, 3A Mr. Baseball, District Player of the Year, and All-State 2-Way Team finishing the season with a .426 batting average and 45 RBI’s; while also going 10-0 on the mound with 67 K’s and a .69 ERA. He slides back into the ace role where he is looking to outplay his own standards set a year prior. In the cleanup spot, you have uncommitted senior prospect Colton Richards who hit .342 last season with 10 2B’s and 32 RBI’s, while also going 10-2 on the mound with 69 K’s and a .78 ERA. He is another guy that had a phenomenal season a year ago that saw him named District Tournament MVP, All-State Team, All-State 2-Way Team and being named District Pitcher of the Year. He slides back into the #2 role and shouldn’t remain unsigned for long. In the 5 hole, you have sophomore outfielder Carson Norris, who hit .315 last season to an All-District nomination. Batting in the 6 hole looks to be junior IF/RHP Kobe Mundy who offers soft hands and ability to maneuver the hot corner. Senior Corbin Cannon should take over an outfield spot at times this year, but should settle back in as being the primary DH , where he hit .350 a season ago, while being named to the All-District team. Noah Murray will be back behind the dish where he was also named an All-District team selection and should slide somewhere in the bottom half of the order. Sophomore Will Harmon should take primary duties in one of the corner outfield spots, while also being their #3 guy on the hill. His FB has continued to gain in velocity where he has been up to the mid 80’s and was named to the TSSAA Super Freshman team. The Devils will also get a spark plug in transfer Conner Ireland, who looks to take over 2nd base full time with Bishop moving to CF. The high-end talent is back with the majority of last year’s 36-4 team back intact. Pitching depth after their starting rotation looks to be their only concern, but if their dudes can go deep into games, expect that to not be an issue as they find themselves back in Murfreesboro for a chance at defending their title.
