Perfect Game USA, which is touted as "Baseball's Largest Scouting Service," has published a list of the top 100 junior college baseball players for 2012 and it's Bellevue College pitcher Adrian Sampson heading the next class of baseball's best junior college prospects.

Sampson, a 6-foot-3, 195-pound right handed pitcher and graduate of Skyline High School helped the Bulldogs to the NWAACC championship and recently committed to the University of Oregon to continue his career.

He was selected by the Marlins in the 16th round of the 2011 MLB First Year Player Draft but did not sign, electing instead to return to Bellevue College for another season.
