Roydel Williams, of
East St. John HS; Reserve, La.

For a team looking for blazing speed and outstanding athletic ability, Williams is their man. He was the top prep wide receiver in Louisiana last fall and has designs on playing two sports at Tulane, though he's indicated he would forgo a promising football career if the right offer comes along. Most teams wouldn't allow him to play college football while pursuing a career in the minor leagues because they feel he'll need to devote his undivided attention to baseball to develop properly. Though he hit .468-1-23 this spring, his actions at the plate are raw. His arm is considered below-average.
