Russell County baseball star Anfernee Grier was listed among MaxPreps' top 10 high school outfield prospects for the 2013 MLB draft on Thursday.

Grier, whose Warriors will play at Spanish Fort in the Class 5A state semifinals on Friday, is hitting .400 this season with six home runs, 53 RBIs and 18 stolen bases. Before a 1-for-8 swoon in last week's sweep of Marbury, the right fielder had gotten hits in 13 of his previous 27 at-bats.

Russell County (42-6) has won 34 consecutive games going into its series at Spanish Fort (41-7).
