Devon Torrence is a 2007 OF/SS with a 6'2'', 190 lb. frame from Canton OH, who attends Canton South HS. He has an excellent athletic body with present strength and easy balanced actions. Torrence is one of the top rated football athletes in the country and has signed with Ohio State in that sport. That he came down to Florida in January to play baseball impressed us. As you would expect, Torrence's run and throw tools are outstanding. He's an easy runner with acceleration and ran the 60 in 6.49. His throwing fundamentals in the outfield were raw, especially with his front side, but he threw 88 mph and his throws were on line and accurate. Torrence is a switch-hitter at the plate who looks more advanced from the right side but who has legit bat speed from both sides. He has a simple, balanced swing from both sides and some lift in his swing. He tracks the ball well and is a patient hitter. His best contact is to the alleys and he has the leverage and balance at the plate to project more power in the future. Whether Torrence ever ends up on a baseball field at the upper levels is a question with his football ability, but he has the talent to be a very good baseball player and shows skills you usually don't see in a football star.
