Zac Taylor is a 2007 OF/P with a 6'1'', 170 lb. frame from Vandiver AL, who attends Coosa Valley Academy. He has an athletic build with good present strength and the frame to get stronger still. Taylor was one of the best game hitters at the showcase and seemed to hit the ball hard every time at the plate. He has unconventional hitting mechanics in that he hits from a spread, crouched stance and tends to fall off to first base during his swing, but he has the bat head skills to square up on the ball consistently and the ball jumped on contact. He both pulled the ball hard and stayed inside the ball to the middle of the field. Taylor's rolling exit from the batter's box means he gets down to first base much quicker than one would expect, with a best home to first time of 4.31, versus his 60 time of 7.67. Taylor showed good arm strength from the outfield and good actions to the ball. Overall, Taylor is a good looking athlete who can swing the bat. He is also a very good student.

Zac Taylor is a 2007 OF/1B/P from Coosa Valley Academy in Vandiver, AL, with a 6'1'', 160 lb. frame. Taylor has a lean and projectable body with athleticism, and was named to the Top Prospect Team at the event. Defensively he has good arm strength from the OF with online carry to the base, and e gets to the ball quickly and has a quick release. He has plus actions in the outfield, and will keep runners from taking that extra base. At the plate he is a left handed hitter with good bat speed from a wide stance. Taylor has a balanced swing and will use the whole field, but if the ball is on the inner half he can hit it hard to the pull side with power. The pieces are there for Taylor to develop into a very good hitter at the next level. He also pitched at the event and topped out at 81 mph with his fastball. He has a loose and easy arm on the mound, but his mechanics need some fine tuning. Taylor is a very good prospect that needs to be followed, and he is a very good student at well.
