College or the Minor leagues

That is the decision facing Eddie Prasch:

Milton shortstop Eddie Prasch and center fielder Dexter Fowler, Blessed Trinity center fielder Tyler Flowers and Roswell relief pitcher Jeff Robinson caught scouts' eyes and now have to choose between playing in college or entering the minor leagues.

Prasch and Fowler, who helped the Eagles win the Class AAAAA championship over East Coweta, were picked by Pittsburgh in the third round and Colorado in the 14th round, respectively. Flowers was taken by the Braves in the 27th round, and Robinson by Pittsburgh in the 35th.

Prasch, a Georgia Tech signee, led Milton regulars in batting average (.463), slugging percentage (.919), runs scored (55) and RBIs (54).
