12th Round Pick- Carter Trice 2B (NC State University)

Carter Trice is an interesting player. He began his career at Old Dominion where he mashed as a freshman. He hit .355/.426/.633 with 14 homers and another 20 extra-base hits while stealing 8 bases and playing almost the entire season at an average of three years younger than the average competitor. 

His sophomore year saw a bit of regression in terms of average but he hit for more homers and stole significantly more bases (18). That made him an attractive candidate to leave Conference USA for greener pastures. Much like Paul Skenes left Air Force to go to LSU, win a National Championship and become the number one overall pick, Trice left Old Dominion for NC State but unfortunately had the worst year of his college career.

He batted .248/.348/.479 while playing in fewer games than he had his previous two years and seeing his numbers fall across the board. If the Cubs can get the player that feasted on Conference USA competition they might have a solid player on their hands. If they get the one that was mediocre at NC State, they might have a solid organizational prospect.
