Torkelson has been a prep jack of all trades, playing football, baseball and even a little basketball while both pitching and hitting for Casa Grande High. He's an athletic 6-foot-1, 205-pounder whom Arizona State is counting on as a potential middle-of-the-order bat in its recruiting class. Torkelson has some rawness to his game, especially defensively at third base, but has shown plus raw power, hitting seven home runs this spring. Scouts like his swing, and he's young for the class as he's not yet 18 at draft time.
