Drew Hillman is a 2007 3B/IF/OF with a 6'0'', 185 lb. frame from Lake Forest CA, who attends El Toro HS. Selected as a Top 10 Prospect at this event. Hillman is a prototypical 3rd baseman, at the college level and beyond. He hits, hits for power, has a great glove and a strong arm, with instincts and quick reactions, and he runs well too. He is strong and athletically put together, with a very good present day build that can still hold more size and strength. Offensively he was very impressive. He has plus bat speed and a plus trigger. Hillman swings aggressively and makes consistently hard barrel contact. His power to the pull side comes very easily. What was particularly impressive is that his BP stroke, which was dynamite, was the same stroke that played so well for him in game action. He has an advanced approach and big tools. Hillman's swing plane is pretty level and when he gets just a bit to the bottom of the ball, he creates tremendous carry. He is the type of hitter whose mistakes leave the yard. He lets offspeed pitches travel, sitting back and trusting his hands and that quick trigger. Hillman's short power stroke is one that should attract attention from the pro scouts, let alone D1 programs. He is going to make someone look very good for signing him in the late period. Defensively he can play all over the infield, though he stands out as a plus defensive player at 3rd base. Hillman is a playermaker, with soft hands, excellent feet, and good reactions to the ball off the bat. He is athletic and anticipates the play very well. His arm is strong and tracks on a line across the diamond, made even better with his quick release. Hillman is a good student and a no doubt early sign talent that has slipped into the late signing period. Conference championships are won by finding players of his caliber in the late period.
