Prospect: Ricky Surum ('13)
Ricky has really improved his baseball abilities and now shows as a very polished SS with outstanding hands / feet. Feet are quick as he moves well laterally, displaying range in the MIF. Glove action is soft / clean / and sure as he presents out front. He gets rid of the baseball quickly with improved arm strength, showing life, accuracy, and on line carry across the diamond. At the plate, hitting grades are now outstanding with above average power. Hands are quick, generating bat speed through a level swing path. He works to stay inside the ball, utilizing all fields with plus barrel accuracy. Surum has a ton of athletic ability and will get looks from the top collegiate coaches and pro scouts over the next year as he is a solid defender in the middle of the field.
