Texas' high school lefthander crop isn't strong this year, and the top prospect has been inconsistent this spring. Drake Britton has battled his delivery and his command, and his fastball has ranged from 85-88 mph at times to 89-92 at others. He throws from a low arm angle, which makes it tough to stay on top of his slider. He wants top-two-rounds money early in this year, and he won't get that now. He's a prime candidate to be drafted and followed during the summer. He'll go to Texas A&M if he doesn't turn pro.
