It was a successful season for Oklahoma small colleges and that success could yield several draft picks. Here’s a look at some of the players who might get drafted out of Oklahoma’s small college ranks.
Danny Almonte, OF/P, Western: Some scouts think Almonte will be skipped on draft day in part because of his age advantage over his competition but his stats are impressive with a .474 average, 18 homers and 76 RBIs. On the mound he was 9-0.
Landon Camp, 2B, OCU: Camp is the career leader in home runs for the Stars and has said he intends to sign if drafted. The 6-foot-4 Camp hit .330 with 22 homers and 81 RBIs.
Jason Machado, OF, OCU: A smooth defender, Machado doesn’t give anything up at the plate. Machado hit .377 with 21 homers and 85 RBIs in his final season with the Stars.
Matt Morgal, P, Southern Nazarene: Morgal is a former Edmond Santa Fe standout who played at several colleges before settling at SNU. In his final season of college baseball Morgal went 10-2 with a 4.42 ERA and a school record 131 strikeouts.
Brent Weaver, 1B, OCU: The NAIA National Player of the Year, Weaver, 24, is a little old for prospect status but his numbers are impossible to discount. The Midwest City native hit .419 with 37 homers and 91 RBIs. Weaver was drafted out of high school in 2003 in the 38th round by the Brewers.
