Yeah I can't say I have ever heard of him. Couldn't find him on any top 100 list. Sigh.

I don't think they say much bad about any prospect. The kid has good power, it may develop, but the rest of his game is not great, especially at that slot, with what was there. It was a bad, very bad, reach.

But he should be an extremely easy sign!!!!

Asked my scouting buddy for some rough grades on Keon:

60 Power, 30 OBP as potential.

Basically said his ceiling is Mark Reynolds, and its a long ways away.
