A two-sport star in high school (he was also a quarterback), Zubia has become a fixture at Texas. He was actually part of David Pierce’s last recruiting class at Tulane, but when Pierce was hired at Texas, Zubia decided to come to Austin as well. He had to sit out that first year due to transferring, but he’s been a regular in the Longhorns lineup ever since. Zubia’s power has long been somewhat suppressed by Disch-Falk Field, but he has plus raw power and he’s shown his power plays with a wood bat. He holds the Northwoods League single-season home run record with 22. He has some feel for the barrel as well and projects as a fringe-average hitter with above-average power. Zubia is a potentially useful senior sign, but he’s a below-average defender at first who will likely play a good bit of DH. His age (23) is a hurdle as he’ll have to move extremely quickly if he is to be more than an organizational player.
