Michael showed early in his career that he was going to be a very good hitter.
"I hit .435 as a starter my sophomore year," said the 5-10, 170-pounder.
And quite a few colleges have taken took notice of his hitting exploits.
"Mostly, Alabama, Ole Miss, Mississippi State, Vanderbilt, Tennessee and East Carolina are sending me letters," said Michael, a member Team Mississippi, a team of Mississippi high school all stars that competed in the 2005 Sunbelt Classic in McAlester, Oklahoma.
He's also received a couple of calls during the spring recruiting period.
"Ole Miss and Vanderbilt called me," said Michael, a switch-hitter who throws lefthanded.
As of now, Michael doesn't have a list of favorite schools.
"I'm not really ready to make a choice this early," said Michael. "I just want to play ball."
Since he's from the south, specifically Mississippi, is he interested in the SEC and the Mississippi schools?
"It would be great to play in the SEC," said Michael. "I'm also open to any of the in-state schools."
