    Northcut would be an impressive two-way player if he gets to Vanderbilt, but he could easily go in the top three rounds this June thanks to his impressive power and feel for hitting. A third baseman with a high-maintenance body that will need to be kept in check as he develops, Northcut is old for the high school class, but possesses plus power with some evaluators giving him future 70-grade power. Northcut has more than enough arm to handle third base--he reaches the low 90s on the mound--and also has quick reactions and soft hands despite lacking more than short-area quickness. With a chance to stick at third base and provide solid defense at the position, Northcut's bat looks even more intriguing as one of the more powerful prep hitters who didn't show much swing and miss during the showcase circuit.
