Posted: Updated:
MILWAUKEE (WKOW) -

 The Brewers drafted outfielder Trent Clark out of Richland High School in Texas with the 15th overall pick. The 18-year old hit .552 with 3 HR, 24 RBI and 11 stolen bases in his senior season. The left-hander played center field at the high school level. Brewers Vice President of Amateur Scouting Ray Montgomery said the team was surprised Clark was still available in the middle of the first round.

"We are excited to have Trent in the organization. He has proven to be a team leader and is one of the better bats in the draft. He is a potential five-tool player and we are excited to get that type of player with the 15th selection."
