    House is the most prominent pop-up prospect in the country this spring, as he went being an outfielder on some follow lists to one who was playing in front of numerous scouting directors and crosscheckers. House is a lefthanded hitter with explosive athleticism, above-average speed (he's better underway than coming out of the batter's box) and plus raw power. His frame leads some scouts to say he'll end up in a corner outfield spot eventually. But it's been nearly impossible for teams to get a good feel for how much he'll be able to hit. He has put up good numbers each of the past two springs for Whitehouse, but he didn't attend any high-profile showcases or travel tournaments, so teams haven't seen him against top competition. He's done well against admittedly weak pitching, but a team that buys him out of his Oklahoma State commitment is going to be spending significant money on a hitter with much less track record than most of his contemporaries. Some teams could be interested as early as the late second to third round, but others would rather see him prove it in college.
