Robert Long is a 2008 2B/SS with a 5'10'', 155 lb. frame from Durham, NC who attends Riverside. He has a live, compact build with some present strength. Long is a quick twitch athlete and that helps him in all areas of the game. He ran 7.03 hand timed on a slow track and has quick first step. Offensively, he has a balanced set up at the plate with good coil and load and has very quick hands to the ball. He made solid line drive pull contact against all types of pitchers and wasn't bothered at all by mid to upper 80's velocity on the inside half. He has some strength in his hands and the ball came off the bat well. Long looked most comfortable at second base on defense. He has compact, quick actions and showed good range. While he has good arm strength, he will have to work on his accuracy and combining a quick release with getting the ball to the base he's throwing to. Overall, Long is a high energy athlete with good baseball skills who whould be nice player at the next level. He is a good student, too.

Robert Long is a 2008 2B/SS from Riverside HS in Durham, NC with a 5'10", 155 lb. frame. Robert has a lean athletic build and showed off good speed at the showcase. (7.10) Robert shows athletic actions in the batter's box and saw his best contact to right field. His swing gets a little long at times and he will need to work on keeping his hands inside the ball more. Robert has a good tool set for second base. He is a very good athlete with good range in the field. Robert has good overall athletic ability and a good feel for the game. He is a player that could attract the attention of many mid-level colleges.

Robert Long Jr. is a 5'9" 146 pound 2008 middle infielder and right handed pitcher from Durham, North Carolina who attends Riverside High School. He has a lean frame with plenty of room to grow and add strength. Robert showed his speed with a 7.23 60 and a 4.74 down the line. In the field, he has above average skills and a strong arm at 76 mph across the infield. He has very quick hands and makes good transfers from his glove to his throwing hand. He gets to the ball and uses his feet very well. Long's bat is developing and puts the ball in play consistently. He hits with a knee lift trigger and has decent bat speed and hand strength. He will continue to add strength and bat speed and should continue to improve as his body matures. He throws from an overhand arm slot with decent arm speed. He has an effortless delivery and repeats his delivery very well.His fastball was 75-77 mph with good life. His offspeed pitches were a 64-66 mph curveball with ok bite and a change up at 62-63 mph. With three years of school left one can see Robert throwing much harder since he already has solid mechanics.
