PG Grade: 9.5
Edmond Sparks is a 2007 C with a 5'11'', 195 lb. frame from Hampton, Georgia, who attends Lovejoy HS. Edmond has a strong athletic build and put up outstanding numbers during the workout. At the plate Edmond is very strong with good bat speed and a nice line-drive swing plane. He has a patient approach at the plate and the ball will really jump off his bat at times. His raw power projects quite well and he had one of the best batting practices at the showcase. Behind the plate Edmond has only been catching for a year now, but he showed the tools to be a very good catcher at the next level. His arm strength is outstanding and he just needs to improve his footwork. He has very good makeup and with coaching Edmond will be a very good college catcher. Edmond is a player that will attract the attention of many high-level Division I programs as well as some pro interest.
