    A two-time all-Atlantic-10 Conference choice, Lyerly had a productive college career and has a track record for hitting, including the 2008 Northwoods League batting title. Lyerly is just a fair athlete, and his prospect value will depend on how he translates his smooth lefthanded swing and gap power to wood bats. He played some outfield in college and will have to maintain his mobility to stay in left field.
