Kris Bryant's Pro Prospects Have Turned the Corner at San Diego
All-American Kris Bryant.

April 8, 2013

Article written by USA Today writter Jim Halley.

An 'A' student throughout high school, Kris Bryant began as a biology major at the University of San Diego. He has switched to finance, a choice that will likely come in handier, considering his pro baseball potential.





Coming to San Diego was the best decision I've made. I've never doubted coming here.


Bryant is hitting .351 and leads all Division I college hitters in home runs with 14 and walks per game (1.21). He's also among the leaders in RBI (35) and slugging percentage (.847) and is considered a likely first-round choice in Major League Baseball's June amateur draft. Coming out of high school at Bonanza (Las Vegas), he was a 2010 All-USA baseball first-team player but wasn't drafted until the 18th round.

"I have a bunch of motivating factors," Bryant said. "That's definitely one of them. Coming out of high school, I thought I was better than I was selected. I couldn't be happier than I am right now. Coming to San Diego was the best decision I've made. I've never doubted coming here. I just knew that that I would get better and keep on getting better. There are times when it's all about trusting your ability."
