Shane Opitz is a good athlete who was an all-state wide receiver and a guard on Heritage High's basketball team. But his best sport is baseball, where the 6-foot-2, 185-pounder plays shortstop and swings a lefthanded bat. He's a solid defender, but profiles better as an offensive second baseman. He's a hard worker and the type of player who could blossom when he focuses on baseball year-round. Opitz's older brother Jake was a 12th-round pick by the Cubs out of Nebraska in 2008. Shane is also committed to Nebraska, but may not end up there, as he could be taken in the eighth to 12th round.
