1. Noah Miller, SS, Ozaukee HS, Fredonia, Wis. (BA RANK: 74)
Source: HS • Ht: 6-0 • Wt: 180 • B-T: B-R • Commitment/Drafted: Alabama

Miller is a switch-hitting shortstop with big league bloodlines since his brother Owen made his major league debut with Cleveland this year. The 6-foot, 180-pound infielder is an impressive athlete and polished defender with about as good an infield clock as it gets in high school. His elite defense is his standout tool, accompanied by a high baseball IQ and incredible feel for the game. At the plate, the top-ranked player out of Wisconsin has good bat-to-ball skills with a solid approach, and a short, simple stroke from both sides. From the left side Miller has a simpler, line-drive stroke with feel to use the whole field, and from the right side he has more lift with a little more strength and pop to it, though he doesn’t show huge power. He hasn’t faced an impressive array of arms, but he has been able to take what’s given to him and hit balls hard the other way. Miller has at least a solid-average arm with a clean action, and an understanding of when to let loose and when to hold back on throws. The Alabama commit sits back on the ball well when he needs to and does a good job of reading hops and creating angles on the ball. His run tool is average and though he doesn’t have loud tools, Miller offers an impressive package of an all-around player who should be able to play shortstop at the next level.
