Pruitt played well last summer on the showcase circuit, but it has been his Kennesaw Mountain High teammate Tyler Stephenson who has blown up this spring. Stephenson's meteoric rise up draft boards kept high-level scouts watching the Mustangs deep into the spring and some came away impressed by Pruitt as well. He is a plus runner and turned in the second-fastest 60-yard dash time (6.49) at the Tournament of Stars. He's also a plus defender in center field, capable of tracking down balls with ease. But there are more question marks in his offensive game. Pruitt has an inconsistent approach at the plate and is still learning to repeat his swing. He is still physically maturing and has well-below-average power. He has the look of a top-of-the-order hitter, but he'll likely need to refine his swing to allow him to make consistent, hard contact. Pruitt is committed to Vanderbilt and it is expected to be difficult to sign him away from school.
