Kyle Long is a 2008 1B/P with a 6'7'', 280 lb. frame from Ivy, VA who attends St Anne's Belfield HS. He's a unique athlete who is very hard to describe or project athletically. Added to that is his high energy personality that makes him approach the game a bit differently when coupled with his size and athletic ability. Long's baseball future is probably on the mound. He threw 96 mph and was consistently 94-95 mph from the left side with plenty of life. His slider had good spin at 80-81 and despite lots of effort Long threw strikes with both pitches and had an idea what he was doing. To say he was aggressive would be understating things; he attacked hitters with his pitches and looked as if he would after he threw the ball as well. Offensively, Long suffers from having no trigger to start the bat and still wasn't overmatched against the high quality live pitching at the event. In BP, though, he showed his tools with a huge blast off the U Cincinnati gym wall about 450' away. It's hard to project someone Long's size to hit upper level stuff but with some coaching/adjustments he could hit a ball as far as anyone on the planet. You can't help but like this young man because of his energy and approach to the game. He's committed to Florida State for baseball only and has told PG staff that he's only playing football to help his little brother, despite the fact that he's a very high level FB recruit as a two-way tackle. Selected to 2007 Aflac All-American team.
