Clark Murphy is a 2008 OF/1B with a 6'3'', 200 lb. frame from Fallbrook, CA who attends Fallbrook Union HS. He has a strong, well proportioned build with even more strength to come. Murphy has a played extensively at both first base and right field and has the type of tools you want to keep in a corner outfield position. He moves well for a big athlete and makes strong, accurate throws from the outfield. He has soft hands around the bag at first base. Murphy has a history of being one of the top power hitters in the 2008 class but didn't perform up to his normal ability at the plate in Cincinnati. Lucky for us we have seen him completely mash in the past. His issues in Cincy were with timing, and it would be unfair to evaluate him based on this. Murphy made adjustments thoughout the summer when we saw him and he turned it on, as the summer came to an end. Everyone in the baseball community knows his potential and it is immense. Murphy is an outstanding student who has a verbal commitment to UCLA. Selected to 2007 Aflac All-American team.
