    McMahon burst onto the prospect scene as a junior at the 2012 National High School Invitational and had another strong showing at the 2013 NHSI and the Boras Classic in April. Also a star quarterback for Mater Dei's football team, McMahon is a natural leader. He is still developing as a baseball player, but he has taken a step forward this spring, flashing lefthanded power potential. He has done a better job staying inside the ball and driving it the other way as the season has progressed. He has good hitting instincts and leverage in his swing, giving him a chance to be a solid-average hitter with slightly above-average power as he fills out his 6-foot-3, 190-pound frame. A former shortstop, McMahon is learning the nuances of third base and needs to improve his footwork, but he has sure hands and an average arm. He's a below-average runner, but his range should be adequate. A team that likes him could draft him as high as the second round and try to buy him out of a commitment to Southern California.
