Russell is a draft-eligible sophomore that has created a stir across the nation for his impressive power display. He broke Texas' single-season home run record in April when he hit his 21st dinger of the season with two months to pad his total. His power comes from a huge left-handed swing, a swing that has led to equally lofty strikeout totals, particularly last summer play in the Cape Cod League, in which he set the single season record for whiffs. While he strikes out a lot, he does have a disciplined eye, and also draws his fair share of walks. Offensively he is similar to Adam Dunn given his power, patience and strikeouts, but defensively he is a much better player. He glides easily in right field and displays a very strong arm. Draft eligible sophomores typically are harder to sign given their added leverage, but Russell may get drafted early enough in which the money is too good for his to pass on beginning his professional career.
