Drew Longley is a 2007 C with a 6'3'', 170 lb. frame from Lutz FL, who attends Sickles HS. He has a tall and lean frame with long arms and legs that don't show much present strength. We've had Longley at many events in the past year and consider him one of the premium defensive catcher we've seen in the 2007 class. He as excellent arm strength and a very balanced, quick release that produces accurate throws that are consistently under 2.00 to second base and as low as 1.86. Longley has good athletic quickness behind the plate and shifts and receives the ball well. Offensively, Longley has the physical skills to hit and hit with power but is mechanically raw at present. He leans way back during his set up and spins around the ball while his bat drags behind. We've seen flashes of power from Longley as he gets his leverage and strength behind the ball but his balance issues keep him from being a consistent hitter. Longley's defense is going to carry him a long way and the adjustments and improvements he makes offensively will dtermine just how far he goes. Longley is also an excellent student off the field.
