Unsigned Junior Spotlight: C Jackson Hugus


Rocco Iervasi
Florida Director of Operations/Area Scout

Our goal at Prep Baseball Report is to promote high school players, and give them the exposure they need to be able to play at the next level. With the 2020 high school season in limbo, we want to continue to be able to promote players, even when baseball is not being played. Over the last month, we have been spotlighting several uncommitted seniors to help them get the exposure they need to play at the next level in 2021. Starting this week, we will move on to uncommitted 2021's who will be heading into their senior summer.

Next up is uncommitted 2021 C Jackson Hugus (Wellington). Hugus is a strong bodied catcher with a strong arm. He stood out this winter at the West Florida Trial and Preseason All-State.

Scouting Report

1/18/20

Hugus is a strong framed catcher at 5-foot-11, 195 pounds who has shown the athleticism to play multiple positions as well. He moves well laterally behind the plate and blocks and receives well. His transfers are quick and resulted in pop times of 1.95-2.00. In the field, he has an above average arm that was 86 mph from the outfield and 88 mph in the infield. He has average actions in the field defensively and is more suited to stay behind the plate. Offensively, he starts with his hands high and lets the ball get deep. He has a line drive swing with above average bat speed and has shown the ability to hit gap-to-gap.

1/11/20

Strong and athletic frame at 5 foot 11, 195 pounds. Accuracy and carry on throws from the outfield, infield and catching. Moves well laterally behind the plate blocking and strong hands receiving with quick footwork and exchange with poop times to 2nd base at 1.85-2.05.  Tall setup at the plate with a short leg kick to create rhythm with a level bat path and pull side power.
