A couple days ago I had the chance to set up an interview with a big time rising prospect in the 2012 MLB Draft in Courtney Hawkins. Hawkins is a high school outfielder from Carroll High School in Texas who has a commitment to play collegiate baseball at the University of Texas. Keith Law of ESPN.com has rated Hawkins as the 10th best prospect in the draft while MLB.com’s Jonathan Mayo has him ranked 12th.
In the interview below we touch on what strides he feels he made that have helped him fly up draft charts, he gave a scouting report of himself and even discussed how he pitches too. Courtney is a very nice kid who has a good head on his shoulders and a great work ethic that will benefit him in the future. Wherever he goes I am sure he will succeed. If you do not follow him on Twitter already you should (@CHawkins10). He loves interacting with fans and even the pundits. Click the play button below to listen to my discussion with Courtney.
