Anthony Alford is a 2012 OF with a 6-2 210 lb. frame from Petal, MS who attends Petal HS. Extra strong chiseled build. Open stance at the plate, very strong hands, short and quick to contact, the ball jumps hard, drives the ball to the gaps, will be able to hit the ball out to all fields with more experience, needs to keep the barrel on plane longer for consistent hard contact. Sound athletic actions defensively, accurate arm, playable present arm strength. Didn't run 60 but likely plus/plus runner. Football standout, Mississippi 2010 State Player of the Year, high level dual threat quarterback recruit, has some present baseball skills despite that. Outstanding all around athlete.
