Cole Barthel, 3b
Decatur (Ala.) HS


The north Alabama football player of the year as a senior, when he passed for 21 touchdowns, Barthel accepted a football scholarship from Arkansas. Six-foot-2 and 205 pounds, he's so athletic that some scouts compare him to Diamondbacks third baseman Matt Williams. Barthel has a quick bat and considerable power. He also has above-average speed and nice hands. He had a better season than Gamble, but football clouds his signability.
