    Blue is the best of three legitimate prospects on a Lamar High team that includes righthanders Jeff Niemann and Shawn Ferguson. Blue is a pure center fielder who can run a 6.6-second 60-yard dash, and he'll add power to that speed once he bulks up from 6-foot-2 and 190 pounds. He lacks plate discipline and didn't have a strong senior year, so there's some doubt about his ability to hit. A Galveston (Texas) JC recruit, he's expected to turn pro.
