Following up on a strong summer when he was the MVP of the wood-bat New England Collegiate League, Hankerd was the top hitter for Southern California's troubled team, which collapsed in the second half of the season and was expected to miss out on a regional bid for the third time in four seasons. Unlike many college hitters available this season, he has shown improvement, cutting down on his strikeouts while improving his power significantly. Hankerd's bat is his best tool, as he has the strength to maintain a balanced, flat swing that allows him to drive the ball to all parts of the field. He doesn't have natural loft power but has improved in that area this season, improving from one homer in 2005 to 10 this spring. Defensively, Hankerd profiles as a solid left fielder but doesn't have the arm for right. He's a below-average runner as well.
