LJ Hoes is a 2008 OF/IF/P with a 6'0'', 190 lb. frame from Mitchellville, MD who attends St. John's HS. Has a very strong and athletic build and has done a great job adding good strength over the last year. Hoes has played both infield and outfield in the past but it seems to us that his tools play better in the outfield. He has centerfield type instincts and jumps and a cannon right field arm that threw 95 mph during drills and threw lasers in the games. There won't be too many better defensive outfielders in the 2008 class. Offensively, Hoes is really concentrating on staying short and quick to the ball. He has a simple, short load and good rhythm getting his hands moving and squared up on just about everything he swung at, hitting hard line drives and ground balls to all fields. It's easy to see that there is a lot more power in Hoes with his bat speed and strength but his present approach is very impressive for a young hitter and he has a great base to build from. We've seen Hoes frequently in the past and know him to be an outstanding base runner with plus instincts and solid speed (6.77 in Cincinnati). He's a winning type of player who performs and should keep getting better. Hoes has a verbal commitment to North Carolina.

LJ Hoes is a 2008 OF/RHP from St. John's College HS in Mitchellville, MD with a 6'0", 180 lb. frame. LJ has a very athletic build and was the top prospect in attendance at the showcase. He could possibly be an early-round draft pick in the 2008 Draft. At the plate LJ showed quick hands and the bat speed to handle top-level pitching. He drives the ball to all parts of the field, while his best contact is to right-centerfield. LJ has tremendous upside at the plate. In the oufield LJ is outstanding where he has a huge arm (88) and great range. (6.83) He has the tools to possibly become a Major League rightfielder at some point down the line. While LJ does not normally pitch we did get to see him on the mound during the showcase. On the mound LJ throws from a tight 3/4 arm slot with an unloading arm action. He is a max effort pitcher at this point but showed some nice stuff on the mound. His fastball showed good run while he was able to spin a curveball well. LJ showed a nice feel for a CB and will be a very effective high school pitcher if needed. LJ is one of the top 2008 players in the country and plays for one of the top travel teams in country. (Dirtbags) He is a player that people will be hearing alot about in the future.
