Bubba Starling is considered the best high school player in the country according to Baseball America. There is a problem though as Bubba has committed to the University of Nebraska where he is expected to be compete for the starting quarterback position in the fall of 2011. Football people him the next Tim Tebow while baseball people say he could be the next Josh Hamilton.
If Bubba decides to spurn the 2011 MLB Draft, then Mike Anderson will have one of the top players in the country in centerfield when the Huskers play their first season in the Big Ten conference in which they are expected to compete for a conference title right away.
Omaha World Herald had a full report on Bubba that was published on Sunday.
