I think this guy could be the steal of the Reds draft. Plus power and a plus arm, he projects as a RF with plus defense.
I have seen multiple occasions where he's compared to Albert Almora, who was a top 10 overall pick in last year's draft. Supposedly a couple teams wanted to take him in the 3rd round but his asking price was too high ($450K) yet the Reds are willing to match that. BA ranked him 205th overall, which I believe is higher than any of the Reds other draft picks after Ervin and Lorenzen. (Howard was #234).
Will be great if we can sign him. Hopefully he turns out better than the last Florida HS OF "projected steal" drafted after the 10th round, Kyle Waldrop.
