11. Tim Alderson, Horizon (Scottsdale, Ariz.), RHP, 6-7, 210 pounds
2007 stats: 12-0, 1.05 ERA, 111 Ks in 73 IP
Breakdown: Alderson boasts the best command of any high school hurler from the Class of 2007. He walked just four batters all season, giving him nearly a 28-to-1 strikeout-to-walk ratio. The Gatorade Arizona Player of the Year, Alderson has proved he is a capable big-game pitcher over the past few years. He earned state-title game victories for the Huskies as a sophomore and senior and was a key member of last summer's U.S. Junior National Team that took silver at the IBAF World Junior Championship in Cuba.
Plan B: Oregon State
12. Josh Smoker, Calhoun (Ga.), LHP, 6-2, 190 pounds
2007 stats: 12-0, 0.82 ERA, 144 Ks in 68 IP
Breakdown: Smoker edged out Heyward for Gatorade State Player of the Year honors in Georgia after leading Calhoun to the Class AA state championship series. The power pitcher has been a strikeout machine in his career with the Yellow Jackets -- fanning more than 450 batters over the past four years. With a five-pitch repertoire that features a low-90s fastball, a devastating split-fingered fastball and a strong curveball, it's no wonder Smoker sent so many opponents back to the bench shaking their heads.
Plan B: Clemson
13. Justin Jackson, T.C. Roberson (Asheville, N.C.), SS, 6-2, 180 pounds
2007 stats: .521, 12 HRs, 40 RBIs
Breakdown: Jackson started every game at shortstop last summer for the U.S. Junior National Team, forming a formidable double-play combination with No. 28 Christian Colon of Canyon (Anaheim, Calif.). Jackson hit .310 for the U.S. and came back this spring to hit .521 for the Rams, adding a good blend of power (12 homers) and speed (22 steals). Jackson hails from the same high school as 2005 first-round pick Cameron Maybin (No. 10, Detroit).
Plan B: Arizona State
14. Jack McGeary, Roxbury Latin (West Roxbury, Mass.), LHP, 6-3, 200 pounds
2007 stats: 5-1, 0.88 ERA, 80 Ks in 40 IP
Breakdown: The Northeast isn't known for turning out many first-rounders from the high school ranks, but McGeary is the third Northeast pitcher ranked in the top 15. His fastball-curveball combo isn't overpowering, but he spots both pitches well and managed to fan exactly two batters per inning this season. The Gatorade Massachusetts Player of the Year, McGeary could be the first Bay State high schooler selected in the first round since 2003.
Plan B: Stanford
15. Madison Bumgarner, South Caldwell (Hudson, N.C.), LHP, 6-5, 220 pounds
2007 stats: 11-2, 0.98 ERA, 143 Ks in 86 IP
Breakdown: Bumgarner is a scout's dream. He has a perfect pitcher's frame, he's a lefty and his fastball reaches the mid 90s. Add in a solid changeup and curveball and Bumgarner is another prep pitcher likely to go in the first round. He got knocked around a couple times during the regular season but turned it on when it mattered most. In his final two playoff starts -- in the Class 4A state semis and finals -- Bumgarner pitched 14 shutout innings and fanned 27 to lead the Spartans to the crown.
Plan B: North Carolina
16. Peter Kozma, Owasso (Okla.), SS, 6-0, 170 pounds
2007 stats: .522, 11 HRs, 55 RBIs
Breakdown: Owasso won the Oklahoma Class 6A state title and finished the year ranked No. 5 in the Top 25 thanks in large part to Kozma. He saved his best for last, hitting .700 in the state tournament with four long balls and seven RBIs. Also a strong defender with good speed, Kozma easily won the Gatorade Oklahoma Player of the Year award. He may not be the flashiest player in the draft, but he will make whichever team drafts him very happy.
Plan B: Wichita State
17. Ryan Dent, Wilson (Long Beach, Calif.), SS, 5-11, 190 pounds
2007 stats: .468, 29 RBIs
Breakdown: Dent was the sparkplug for the Division I Southern Section champions, posting an on-base percentage of nearly .600 and stealing 30 bases. In the sectional title game at Dodger Stadium last weekend, Dent proved he could do a little bit of everything by doubling, drawing three walks, scoring a run and driving in another. With good plate discipline and the ability to hit the ball to all fields, Dent should be one of the first middle infielders to come off the board.
Plan B: UCLA
18. Kevin Ahrens, Memorial (Houston), SS/3B, 6-1, 185 pounds
2007 stats: .426, 10 HRs, 41 RBIs
Breakdown: The Greater Houston area was loaded with top prospects this spring, but Ahrens rose to the top of the list with his sensational senior season. A classic power hitter, Ahrens was a threat to go deep every time he stepped to the plate this spring. With that sort of pop, Ahrens probably won't be around past the first round.
Plan B: Texas A&M
19. Yasmani Grandal, Miami Springs (Fla.), C, 6-2, 200 pounds
2007 stats: .454, 13 HRs, 49 RBIs
Breakdown: Grandal entered the spring behind fellow Greater Miami prospect Danny Rams (No. 30) for bragging rights as the top prep catcher in the nation. Grandal's outstanding senior season was enough to overtake his South Florida counterpart. Grandal carried Miami Springs to the Florida Class 6A regional semifinals, the team's best finish this decade.
Plan B: Miami
20. Drew Cumberland, Pace (Fla.), SS, 5-10, 170 pounds
2007 stats: .494, 3 HRs, 19 RBIs
Breakdown: Cumberland earns the final spot in the Top 20 thanks to outstanding overall athleticism and speed. He was a Class 4A All-State selection as a defensive back in the fall and could have pursued a career in football if he weren't a sure-fire early-round major league draft pick. Cumberland doesn't have a ton of power, but he can make up for it by turning singles into doubles or stealing bases like Jose Reyes.
Plan B: LSU
