Michael Williams is a 2008 C/1B with a 6'1'', 197 lb. frame from Knoxville, TN who attends Farragut HS. He has a live body for a catcher with a good combination of durability/strength and quickness. Williams is a top level defensive catcher and should keep getting better and better into the next level. He's very good at moving his feet, shifting and blocking balls in the dirt. He receives the ball easily and has good hands. Williams arm is a plus and it's accurate. His best pop time was 1.85 and he's going to control running games. Offensively, Williams has the tools to hit but could be more aggressive. He has a simple no stride approach at the plate. His swing plane is level and he has strong hands. There is some hidden power here waiting to surface. His defense will carry him a long ways for now and far into the future. Williams is an outstanding student.
