Craig went to the same high school as current Tigers lefthander Daniel Norris--Science Hill High in Johnson City, Tenn. He was also a member of the same 2013 Tennessee prep class that included Nick Senzel and Jordan Sheffield, among others. Most schools who saw Craig in high school liked him more as a pitcher, but he's flipped the script at Wake Forest, where he's been one of the country's best statistical hitters. With his thick 6-foot-3, 235-pound body, Craig has hit double-digit home runs the past two springs and has great feel for the strike zone. But due to the hitter friendliness of Wake Forest's home park and a lackluster showing in the Cape Cod League last summer, some scouts question how much Craig's power will translate with a wood bat. Craig's future position is also in question. He has the arm strength to play third--he throws in the low- to mid-90s off the mound--but his body and range could force a move to first base.
