Erik Johnson was the bulldog ace for California this season. He is 6’2″, 240 and is a workhorse who can run it up to 94 or 95. He has a good change and a nice breaking ball as well. His mechanics are erratic and he isn’t overly athletic but at worst he will be a good set up man. He could be a #3 guy and eat 200 innings if everything works right for him and he can iron out his mechanics a little.

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.

The pair will begin their professional careers with the Bristol White Sox, Chicago’s rookie league team in Bristol, Va

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.

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.

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