Mount wasn't at the top of any follow lists entering his senior year at Ayala High and didn't attend any of the major national showcases last summer. Just two colleges--UC Irvine and Cal State Fullerton--recruited him. His stock has taken off this spring, rising faster than any high school player in California. But he's been a tough player to get a read on. Some teams swear he's a second-rounder, at worst, while others haven't bought into the hype and see him more as a fourth- or fifth-rounder. The teams that like him see a fundamentally sound baseball player, a lefthanded-hitting shortstop with offensive upside. They also see better than average speed and arm strength suitable for the left side. His detractors don't believe he can play shortstop and don't believe he will have the power for third base, unless he gets bigger and stronger. No matter where he's picked, Cal State Fullerton coaches are resigned that a player who once seemed a certain bet to head to college won't be coming.
