They speak pretty highly on the kid. It's nice having a potential impact position player in the system. Besides Beckham's short stay in the minors I can't think of a solid position player that we have had in the minors. Dayan Viciedo, Brandon Allen and Chris Carter come to mind but I think Hawkins' overall potential trumps theirs.
Chris Young was BA's #23 and #12 prospect in baseball in 2006 and 2007 respectively, but that was after the Sox had traded him to Arizona. Hawkins is, without a doubt, the best position prospect the Sox have had since Joe Crede.

EDIT - BA was in the BA Top 100 two consecutive seasons, as well, but I am confident that by the time he reaches Chicago*, Hawkins will have surpassed his pedigree.

* assuming he doesn't get traded
