Klein Collins had legitimate state- and national-title aspirations until shortstop C.J. Hinojosa and lefthander Cody Geisler succumbed to shoulder injuries. The only Tigers star who stayed healthy was Dean, who moved from first base to second after Hinojosa went down. One of the top high school hitters in Texas, Dean makes consistent hard contact from the right side of the plate. The 6-foot-1, 185-pounder has the swing and bat speed to hit for both average and power. He has some athleticism and close to average speed, but a lack of arm strength and footwork limits him defensively and knocks him down draft boards a bit. Dean could get a chance at second base, though left field could be his ultimate destination. Like Hinojosa, he's expected to attend Texas rather than turn pro.
