Jesse Kay is a 2012 C with a 6-1 200 lb. frame from Encinitas, CA who attends Cathedral Catholic HS. Strong mature build, prototypical catcher's look. Very good defensive tools behind the plate, outstanding throwing arm, on line throws, accurate, simple quiet receiver with quick exchange, low comfortable set up, 1.90 best pop time. Open stance hitting, wide base, short quick swing, consistent line drive contact, all fields, gets through the ball well, aggressive swing, has some bat speed but trying to keep it simple and short, more in there as a hitter. Defense really stands out, no question he can play high D1 baseball. Outstanding student.
