    Adkison redshirted 2015 after getting hit in the face by a pitch and was solid but unspectacular upon his return in 2016. In 2017 he elevated himself into draft consideration with a monster redshirt junior year, hitting .349 with 15 homers and 62 RBis in the regular season. Adkison is undersized at 5-foot-10, 190 pounds but utilizes a short, quick swing to generate significant leverage and hit monstrous home runs, including a shot off the batters eye at San Diego scouts talked about for weeks after. He is a below-average runner despite his size and is a below-average defender in left field with a below-average arm. Adkison's profile is unconventional as an undersized player who can't run or defend and packs big power, but evaluators believe an analytically-inclined organization could take him as high as the 10th round because of his impact bat.
