PG Grade: 9.5
Christopher Epps is a 2007 OF/P with a 6'1'', 167 lb. frame from Stone Mountain GA, who attends Dunwoody HS. He has a lean, wiry body that hasn't begun to fill out much yet but that has good strength potential. Epps has performed at a high level all summer and continued to show his tools at the showcase. He has very quick hands at the plate that create plus bat speed but keep his swing short and to the ball. Epps hits line drives to all fields and while he's shown power this summer, he's more of a gap to gap type now. The power will come down the road as he fills out. Epps will occasionally drift into balls with his upper body, causing his bat to drag through the zone a bit. Defensively, Epps is one of the best outfielders in the 2007 class. He has an excellent throwing arm with on line carry and accuracy. He moves through the ball very well and gets rid of it quickly. Epps 6.92 speed isn't ideal for centerfield but he has the instincts to play there at the next level. Epps is a hustling, high energy player and very personable off the field. He has committed to Clemson.
