Playing alongside Josh Smoker has given Calhoun High shortstop Culberson plenty of opportunity to impress scouts, and he made the most of the added exposure. A gamer in the mold of Marcus Giles, Culberson is a baseball rat who has Hall of Fame bloodlines in his extended family. He's related to George Sisler, and his grandfather was Leon Culberson, who spent six seasons in the big leagues with Boston and Washington in the 1940s. Charlie doesn't have the range to stick at shortstop, and though he posted huge power numbers this season, doesn't project to hit for power as a professional. His pitch recognition and plate discipline could improve. He's a below-average runner. He has a plus arm and fringe-average bat speed, however, and given all the intangibles, could become an attractive pick in the third or fourth round.
