Blogs > Burney's Bytes

Burney's Bytes will focus primarily on the local preps sports scene, but will also touch on some college and pro athletics, mostly in regards to athletes who hail and have played high school sports in Oakland County. My goal for the blog is to be conversational and anecdotal, a more relaxed and free formal take on high school athletics than you see in regular game day coverage.

Hitting His Stride

Of all the elite baseball players Birmingham Brother Rice has produced in recent years, Nick Plummer might be the best of the bunch.
If you believe the scouts he is.
Plummer (6-foot-0, 210 pounds), a left-handed hitting senior outfield prospect, is being projected a Top 10 pick in the 2015 MLB Draft this upcoming June. ESPN has him currently tabbed the No. 8 overall selection.
A four-year starter on the diamond for TEAM RIKER, he's 5-tool all the way. Burney knows Nick the Stick has ALL THE RIGHT MOVES to make it to The Show.
Just check the stats:
Last season, he hit .580 with 8 dingers and 35 RBI and was named first-team all-state for a Rice club that won another in a long line of Catholic League crowns.
Originally committed to the University of Michigan, over the summer Plummer de-committed from the Wolverines and pledged to play his college ball with the Kentucky Wildcats back in the summer.
Three Brother Rice alums were chosen in the 2014 MLB Draft: Western Michigan's Andrew Sohn by the St. Louis Cardinals, Michigan State's Jimmy Pickens by the Cincinnati Reds and schoolboy star Sammy Stevens (Georgetown) by the hometown Tigers.
