SCOUTING REPORT
Pierce looks like a very promising prep pitcher.  He has a commitment to Nebraska, following a senior season where he struck out 133 batters and walked just 22 in 70 innings.  Pierce can throw in the mid-90s, and was rated the 99th best prospect in Texas by Baseball America.  He will likely be a backup plan for the Pirates, should some of the early round pitchers fail to sign.
