Like Cory Raley, Schotts is a speedy Texas high school shortstop who has starred on the gridiron (in his case, as a safety) and shot up draft boards after not drawing much attention before this spring. He's more advanced at the plate, while Raley has a better chance of sticking at shortstop. Five-foot-11 and 180 pounds, Schotts has a sound righthanded swing and more pop than the typical middle infielder. His power gets him into trouble at times when he lets his stroke get too big. A well above-average runner, Schotts covers enough ground at shortstop, but his fringy arm doesn't fit on the left side of the diamond. He could move to second base and has the speed for center field. He's committed to Oklahoma State.
