He would need to be a very productive player from that point forward to not be a bust.
Plus, that means he would have to blow through 3 levels in 1-2 years. Absolutely can happen, but a little difficult to imagine when he only has 2-3 solid months under his belt in Low A playing against competition without his pedigree.
Top 10 guys have much higher standards to live up to.
