Macri was Iowa's high school football player of the year after accounting for 36 touchdowns as a quarterback and leading Dowling High to a 13-0 record and the state 4-A championship. His football days are done, but he still has tough decisions ahead. He wants to attend Notre Dame and it may require a bonus of $3 million to change his mind. If he goes to school, he'll be a draft-eligible sophomore in 2003. He also has to decide if he wants to pitch. Scouts love his 92-94 mph fastball, hard slider, effortless mechanics and projectable body (6-foot-2, 185 pounds). His upside may be higher as a pitcher, but Macri prefers playing shortstop. He's the best true shortstop available, though at least one scouting director questions his quickness at the position. Others have timed Macri in 6.7 seconds in the 60-yard dash and have no doubt that he's athletic enough to play there. Any question about Macri's ability centers around his bat, though he has hit everywhere he has played. His strength gives him above-average power potential for a middle infielder.
