REMINISCENT OF? Phil Mickelson. The 6'1" Uihlein has superb length off the tee and shotmaking ability.
COACH'S COMMENT "I've heard so many coaches say that he's the only kid since Mickelson who has all the shots in his bag," says Tim Sheredy, a senior instructor at IMG's David Leadbetter Golf Academy in Bradenton, Fla., where Uihlein will be a junior. "The way Peter can control a golf ball's distance and trajectory is extraordinary."
ETA On the PGA Tour by 2012. Uihlein's father, Wally, is the chairman and CEO of Acushnet Company, which produces Titleist golf balls. "My parents have video footage of me with a club when I was in a walker," says Peter, who plans to graduate from college before turning pro.
ACHIEVEMENTS EA Sports named him the nation's top sophomore player in 2005, when he caught 75 passes for 1,422 yards and 16 touchdowns at Summerville High. A two-time all-state selection, Green--whose initials stand for Adriel Jasmaer--was the first freshman ever to be interviewed by recruiting analyst Tom Lemming for his Prep Football Report.
COACH'S COMMENT "He's one of the best players I've ever seen," says John McKissick, who has more wins (519) than any other high school coach in history. "When we have to, we line him up at cornerback and put him on the other team's best receiver. He can do anything he wants to."
