9 279 Chicago Cubs Garrett Schlecht OF Ill. $235,000
Outfielder Garrett Schlecht has the best combination of talent and signability among Illinois high school players. More physical than Charlie Tilson at 6-foot-2 and 198 pounds, Schlecht has a quick lefthanded bat and consistently barrels balls. A Middle Tennessee State recruit, he's a decent athlete whose fringy speed and arm probably will relegate him to left field.
