Southern Mississippi Biography

MLB Draft Tracker:

Pierce began his college career at Jones County Junior College and transferred to Southern Mississippi for his junior year. He became the Golden Eagles ace and has pitched well over the last two seasons. Listed at 6-foot-4, 160 pounds, Pierce doesn’t have ideal size, but earns high marks for his pitchability. His fastball sits around 90 mph and he can add cut or sink to it as needed. Pierce also throws a slider and a changeup and commands all three of his pitches well. Pierce hasn’t been draft before, but will be a solid senior sign this year.

Pierce talks about his prospects of being drafted and what his future holds with a heavy southern accent.
