21. Brice Turang, SS, Santiago HS (Corona, Calif.), Milwaukee Brewers

This LSU signee was an American Family Insurance ALL-USA First-Team selection after hitting .352 with five homers and 21 RBI this spring. He is the son of former MLB utility player Brian Turang, who played for the Seattle Mariners for two seasons (1993-94). While his father has had a major impact on his baseball career, Turang also has four older sisters who all played college sports. Additionally, his mother Carrie was a Div. I softball standout.

“A lot of people don’t know about my mom,” Brice Turang told Baseball America last summer. “My mom played in the World Series of softball (for Long Beach State). People just think, ‘Oh my dad’s the athlete.’ You’re totally wrong.”

MLB.com estimates that the No. 21 pick is worth $3,013,600.
