Shortstop Justin Atkinson has a profile similar to that of Carter Bell, who played for the junior national team a few years ago and is now at Oregon State. Atkinson shows plenty of arm strength at shortstop and makes all the plays with sure hands and good footwork, but he's a little slow-footed and doesn't have enough range to stay there at the professional level. At 6-foot-2 and 205 pounds, Atkinson has strength, but scouts have to project on his power and he may not have enough pop for third base. Atkinson is committed to Central Arizona JC.
