AFLAC All-American Classic Includes Two Houstonians

The AFLAC All-American Baseball Classic just announced its roster for the 2010 game. It includes two guys with Houston connections.

Daniel Mengden (Westside HS) is a 6-foot-2, 190 pound right-hander who has already committed to the University of Houston. He was named Athlete of the Week by myHouston 55 back in 2009 as a sophomore. A gifted athlete, Medgen looks to have some serious potential on the mound in the future. It's also interesting to note that Medgen is listed as a catcher as well, and Perfect Game USA notes that his bat is "interesting". Might he eventually be one of those guys who catches the first eight innings and closes in the ninth?

Matthew Dean (The Colony HS) is a 6-foot-2, 190 pound shortstop/right-handed pitcher. He is committed to Texas and could play either on the mound or in the field. He's got a "very interesting bat" and a fastball that sits at 88. He has already played well on other all-star contests and should have another good showing here.

As John Klima indicated in the article announcing the rosters, this doesn't guarantee these guys will be drafted high in 2011, but they both should turn into solid Division I players at the very least.
