Brad Nelson, 1b
Bishop Garrigan HS, Algona, Iowa


Nelson is one of the better high school hitters available, with considerable power to all fields. He has put on a show at talent showcases, where he faces stiffer competition than he does in high school. He has pitched, showing a fastball that touches the low 90s, but doesn't face the career choice that Macri does. The 6-foot-2, 225-pound Nelson is a hitter all the way. His strong arm and good hands play well at third base, but his below-average speed may result in a move to first base.
