Drafted in the 6th round (194th overall) by the New York Yankees in 2006 (signed for $130,000)
Hilligoss is the state's best pure hitter. He won the Big 10 Conference batting title with a .404 average in 2005--surpassing ex-major leaguer Archi Cianfrocco's Purdue hits record with 92 along the way--and finished second with a .386 mark this spring. Hilligoss employs a simple lefthanded swing, uses the whole field and has average speed. He has some range and arm strength, but his hands aren't soft enough for him to stay at shortstop. Scouts say third base and the outfield are two possibilities, and converting him to catcher might be worth a shot. A club looking for a polished college bat could take him in the first 10 rounds, and the Giants and Yankees are believed to have interest.
