Two years ago, Carl Albert High produced a third-round pick in shortstop J.T. Realmuto, who hit 28 homers and set a national record with 119 RBIs. He since has moved behind the plate in the Marlins system, and one of the reasons he didn't catch at Carl Albert was the presence of Hawkins. Hawkins matched Realmuto with 28 homers this spring, including one in an Oklahoma 5-A state championship-game victory, and finished his career with 74, one short of Jeff Clement's national record. Righthanded power is the 6-foot, 200-pounder's most obvious tool, though he also has some arm strength and is more athletic than most catchers. He needs to clean up his defense behind the plate and is likely headed to college. Hawkins has committed to both Grayson County (Texas) CC and Oklahoma.
