USM Pitcher Gabe Shepard tabbed in 2020 prospect rankings

Southern Miss Pitcher Gabe Shepard has a bright future beyond his time in Hattiesburg as a draft-eligible prospect who is gaining a lot of traction.

Today, USM’s Friday night starter grabbed a spot in D1Baseball’s college top 250 rankings, coming in at number 115. Shepard has only thrown 42 innings in a Black and Gold uniform, but already has 62 strikeouts to his name.

The sophomore standout struggled a bit with his command to start the 2020 season, but Shepard flashed his brilliance during last year’s Conference USA Tournament, throwing seven-and-a-third no-hit innings thanks to his electric five pitch mix from the right side.
