With the #1 pick in the 2010 draft, the Nationals select...

...Bryce Harper, Phenom, College of Southern Nevada (after earning his GED at age 16).

Harper, a 16-year-old who just completed his sophomore year, has registered at the College of Southern Nevada, where he plans to attend classes in August and play for the Coyotes next season.
Bryce Harper and his mother, Sheri, recently went to CSN and signed enrollment forms and his letter of intent to play baseball. Harper is aiming to earn his GED test credentials in the fall.
So not only will Boras have a "once in a generation" pitching talent with Strasburg this year, he could have Harper next year. And he'll have his gun in the back of the Nats (in all likelihood) yet again this time next year. At 16, I was just hoping to get a car. He's contemplating a multimillion dollar draft bonus. Of course, I wasn't a 6-foot-3-inch catcher who hit .626 with 14 home runs and 55 RBIs along with 36 stolen bases.
