Crunk @ AR:

Collin Kuhn and Kyle Robinson are set to begin their professional baseball careers as the pair have signed professional contracts with the Chicago White Sox. Kuhn was the White Sox’s 17th round selection with the 531st overall pick, while Robinson was drafted in the 28th round with the 861st overall pick. The pair will begin their professional careers with the Bristol White Sox, Chicago’s rookie league team in Bristol, Va

First, here’s Collin Kuhn’s scouting report from Baseball America:

Fellow Razorback outfielder Collin Kuhn outhit Kyle Robinson against better league pitching and was the team’s leading home run hitter. Like Robinson, he can be too aggressive at the plate, but at least he has speed and can sub in as a center fielder. His below-average arm may limit him from being a fourth outfielder, however. He’s a fourth-year junior with present strength and no carrying tool.

and here are Kuhn’s College Stats:

Second, here’s Kyle Robinson’s scouting report from Baseball America:

Arkansas has its own senior sign in outfielder Kyle Robinson, who has power and athleticism. He struggled in Southeastern Conference play, hitting just .175.

and here are Robinson’s College Stats:

Year AVG GP-GS AB R H 2B 3B HR RBI TB SLG% BB HBP SO GDP OB% SF SH SB-ATT PO A E FLD%

Robinson played 2 years in Indian River State (Community) College before enrolling in Arkansas:
