The top 100 countdown picks up with number 85 in Rice infielder Ford Proctor.
The 6-foot-1, 190 pound infielder will be entering his junior season in 2018 after a couple of really good years with the Owls.
He was named to the Freshman All-American Team by several outlets after the 2016 season, and he was the Conference USA Freshman of the Year.
That season he hit .336 in 223 at-bats with 34 runs scored, 15 doubles, 3 home runs, 41 RBI and 6 stolen bases. He also had an on-base-percentage of .428.
In the summer of 2016 Proctor played in the Cape Cod League where he hit .286 with a .375 on-base-percentage in 140 at-bats. Proctor scored 16 runs with 6 doubles, a home run, 5 RBI, 2 stolen bases, 18 walks and 22 strikeouts.
Back with Rice in 2017 he hit .311 in 238 at-bats with a .408 on-base-percentage. He scored 58 runs, had 19 doubles, 4 home runs, 38 RBI, 39 walks, 39 strikeouts and 4 stolen bases.
This past summer he went back to the Cape Cod League and saw similar results. He hit just .260 this time around, but scored 16 runs, had 2 home runs, 18 RBI, 16 walks and 23 strikeouts.
The left-handed hitter has a very good eye at the plate and is a patient hitter. His load can get a little long and throw off his timing, but his hands make up for any lag as he can throw them at the baseball for consistent contact.
The biggest thing for Proctor will be how he develops as a power hitter. I think we see him get close to 10 home runs this year, which will raise his stock significantly.
He mostly plays shortstop for Rice, but I think his future is at second base.
If he has another big year at Rice we could see him move up into the first couple rounds of the MLB Draft.
