Scouts and college recruiters were determined to give Weeks a chance to succeed. His brother, Rickie, received only one college scholarship offer — to Southern — and became the No. 2 overall draft selection in 2003. Jemile projects as a typical second baseman — a slick fielder with speed who can get on-base and can hit at the top of a lineup. Weeks has plus speed and good baserunning instincts. He can hit the ball out of the park, but has more success when he makes contact.
Weeks regressed in sophomore year, striking out more and drawing fewer walks. He’ll need to draw more walks to show that he can be a solid leadoff hitter.
Mid-first round selection.
