3B Jose Pujols established himself as the best high school talent in the state last summer before transferring. Pujols finished high school at Christmas and enrolled in junior college for the spring season. He has excellent power and is so versatile afield that he can play almost any position, though his tools seem best suited for third base. Offensively, he generates above-average bat speed and extension.
