Harrison has arguably the best power of any prep hitter in the 2011 draft class.
A Southern California commit, Harrison has already bashed nine homers in 22 games for Tustin HS and has driven in 26 runs. He’s also rapped 11 doubles and has put together one of the best campaigns of any hitter in his district. His average currently sits at a robust .541 and he’s scored 28 runs.
Harrison is on the verge of eclipsing, and has already topped some pretty lofty career-bests. With his most recent home run he set a new career-high, and he’s also set new marks in RBI and walks. He’s still way off the pace of his 17 steals, achieved back in his sophomore season, although he’s inching towards the .556 average he recorded the same year.
While some scouts (many actually) have expressed some concern over the stiffness in Harrison’s swing, it hasn’t affected his ability to crush high-school pitching.
He might actually benefit from heading to college at a prestigious program like USC, but some team will inevitably take a chance, maybe in the supplemental first or second round on him due to his incredible raw power.
He’s also showed some pretty sneaky speed so far this season, swiping 8 bags in 11 attempts. That shouldn’t be a big part of his game as a pro, especially as he fills out and adds some more weight, but it could entice some teams that think they could keep him slim and hang on to some of that speed.
Another question mark for Harrison is his long-term position. He doesn’t have great footwork at third, so he’ll likely end up in the outfield.
