Hawkins is more of a prospect as a bat, but he also consistently hits the low-90s on the mound. He runs well and handles right field, but his power bat is his calling card. At the Area Code games in August, he displayed big, raw power in batting practice. The Longhorns could be adding a future star to their lineup, but Hawkins is a first-round talent with a backup plan as a pitcher.

Quote from recruiting coordinator and associate head coach Tommy Harmon: Courtney had been a two-way player for most of his career at Corpus Christi Carroll, but this summer he turned into one of the premier hitters in the nation. He is more of an outfielder now. He has a large frame, 6-3, 205. He runs well and has exceptional power. He is one of the better high school players in the nation.
