Nathan Blakeney is a 2016 2B/SS with a 6-2 195 lb. frame from Archdale, NC who attends Wesleyan Christian Academy. Big and strong athletic build, square shoulders. Didn't run the sixty but has run 6.94 in the past, moves well for his size on defense and showed nice range up the middle, arm action is very long and over the top for a second baseman. Right handed hitter, hits from a straight spread stance with limited shift or stride, still hand start, strength generated swing, swings hard and creates some bat speed, hits to all fields and has gap power, developing some hitting rhythm and shift could unlock more bat speed. Interesting athlete. Good student, signed with Longwood.
