    Drew Ward has drawn more hype as a rare draft-eligible high school junior, but it's Michalczewski who's the best prospect among Oklahoma prep corner infielders. Ward has more power, but Michalczewski offers plenty of pop along with superior hitting skills and athleticism. A 6-foot-3, 210-pound specimen, he played tight end on Jenks' state 6-A football championship team and caught a 66-yard touchdown in the title game. He has a mature approach and bat speed from both sides of the plate, which should create solid power. He's content to drive the ball from gap to gap for now, with more home runs to come once he turns on more pitches. An average runner with good actions and a strong arm at shortstop, Michalczewski profiles as a third baseman in pro ball. Both he and Ward are Oklahoma recruits but should sign if drafted in the first four rounds.
