Michael Howard is a 2011 OF/LHP with a 6-1 170 lb. frame from Prescott, AZ who attends Prescott HS. Slender live bodied athlete, will get stronger. Quality two-way prospect, grades out better as an everyday player. 6.77 runner, excellent OF actions, quick and aggressive to the ball, very good balance, + footwork, strong and accurate. Left handed hitter, open stance, hand hitch load, good hand quickness, has hitting rhythm, good bat control, some lift/extension out front, will improve with added strength. Smooth stylish southpaw delivery on the mound, upper 80's fastball, topped at 89 mph, cuts FB at 85 mph, soft flat CB, just arm strength at present but has potential. Verbal commitment to Baylor.
