PG Grade: 9
Derrick Dawson is a 2020 C/1B, OF with a 6-1 209 lb. frame from Mishawaka, IN who attends Mishawaka. Large, athletic frame with broad shoulders and present physical strength proportioned well throughout frame. Ran a 7.20 60-yard dash. Primary catcher, lower and flexible set up behind the plate, receives the ball out front and takes a long stride with lower half coming out of crouch to gain ground into throws, opens front side early prior to release, compact arm action ad gets on top of the ball well out of a quick transfer, accurate down to second base. Righthanded hitter, begins with a high hand set and back elbow behind the plate; utilizes a high leg lift trigger for timing in the box. Occasionally gets mistimed with leg lift moving into contact but does a nice job of staying short to the ball with swing. Creates contact out front and shows looseness to hands while generating nice bat speed through the zone, shows ability to work to all fields with comfort. Very good student. Verbal commitment to Evansville.
