Brandon Larson was never a great prospect. He was the best prospect in a completely barren Reds system, but he never got any play in the leaguewide rankings.

Larson was a horrible overdraft by the Reds, who got fooled by his awesome senior season at LSU. Larson was drafted three times prior to the Reds picking him up, and all three times he was taken after the 35th round. Then one good senior season later the Reds took him with the 14th overall pick in the 1st round.
