I believe that eligibility is based on turning 21 before or within several days of the draft.
After being a freshman All America player and hitting .340, his average dipped to .256 last year even though he was healthy enough to start all games. I think he would be well served to remain in school and attempt to reestablish better draft value. Small CF'er with excellent speed and good plate discipline, but no power. Plays CF well enough to cause Brandon Thomas (4th round Pirates) to move to LF.
