Hunter Morris is a 2007 left hand hitting infielder/outfielder from Grissom HS, residing in Huntsville, AL. Morris has a strong, athletic build on his broad, and powerful, yet still developing 6'4" 200 lb. frame. Morris was one of the most intriguing prospects in terms of his tools, playability, and remaining projection. He was ranked #9 among PG National Top 100 position players and was selected to participate in the Aflac All-American Classic. Strength is apparent when Morris swings the bat. He made a lot of plus barrel contact and has many attributes of a young power hitter. He stays behind the ball well and showed good timing. His hands are a plus attribute as his flat, line drive planed swing. As he continues to get stronger his line drives will carry out of the yard. Morris accelerates through contact and the ball just jumps off his bat. There is not a lot of effort in Morris' swing and he looks like he is going to hit a ton. Defensively he is a prospect at either a corner outfield spot or at 3rd base. He has a near plus arm and good hands, while flowing well to the ball. Basically Morris has a full set of tools for the defensive half of the game, much like he does on the offensive half. He looked comfortable at both defensive spots. Morris ran 4.28 home/1st with a laser timed 6.89 60 yard time. If he goes to college he is an impact freshman. Morris is going to be on the crosschecker's follow list and with a good spring he should find himself in the upper rounds of the draft. His left hand bat and all around tool set are among the most impressive in the '07 high school class. Maybe the best thing about Morris is that although he is very good now, he still has tremendous upside.
