    LaValley hit 54 home runs while helping his high school team win three state championships. He's physically dominated Oklahoma prep competition and has improved his body over the course of his high school career. An Oklahoma signee, the massive LaValley is listed at 6-foot-2, 215 pounds but scouts say he's closer to 240, but he's strong has plus raw power. He's expected to have limited defensive value but should be athletic enough to stay at first base. Scouts that liked him saw some wrist snap and feel for hitting to go with the strength. He didn't face a lot of velocity in high school en route to being Oklahoma's Gatorate player of the year, hitting .554 with 18 home runs this spring.
