We had one of our guys there.  We actually "only" got a peak of 99 in the first of the 3 innings he threw.  Top of 96 after that, it was something like 9-0 after the first which he did hit a grandslam.  Actually it was his change up and the fact he didn't walk anyone that stood out the most.  Lots of highest level scouts especially from clubs with early picks.  Looks like LSU might lose him.  If he keeps throwing like this, he will be one of the first few picks, maybe even #1.

If he goes top5 he certainly won't go to college (would be stupid to leave 4+ millions on the table and risk getting injured in college).

I think he certainly could end up top3 since there aren't many top bat or college pitching Options out there. I mean puk and Hansen throw hard but they are wild with command issues. if you take a raw fireballer you just might take the HS kid, since guys who draft college guys look for a polished Player.
