Cameron Cauley thankful for pro interest

Cameron Cauley, a prep shortstop from Texas, has rapidly moved up MLB draft boards over the last year. Now, Cauley is squarely in the draft conversation and a potential second or third-round pick in July’s draft.

Cauley is known for his above-average speed. He went 52 of 53 on stolen-bases attempts in his senior year at Barbers Hill High School in Belvieu, Texas. The right-handed hitter profiles more as a top-of-the-order hitter but added strength to his 5-foot-11 frame over the last year to impact the baseball more consistently this spring.

Below is a follow-up conversation with Cauley from my interview with him in October. In this interview, we discuss his senior season and development throughout high school, including his rise up draft boards over the last year. Cauley also discusses how he has handled the draft attention and his commitment to Texas Tech.
