KC Simonich
Name: KC Simonich

Graduating Class: 2017

Position: 3B/1B

School: Joliet Catholic

Height: 6-3

Weight: 175


The Skinny:
One of the top left-handed hitters in Illinois' 2017 class, Simonich was a middle-of-the-lineup run-producer for one of the state's top programs, Joliet Catholic, as a sophomore. At 6-foot-3, 175 pounds, Simonich has a highly projectable frame, and should continue to physically develop in the coming years. Defensively, Simonich currently is a corner infielder, but may project in the outfield at the next level.

Scouting Report:
6-foot-3, 165-pound long and lanky left-handed hitting LF/1B ranked No. 7 in Illinios’ 2017 class, No. 54 overall, elite underclass prospect with bat, possibly best pure hitter in Illinois’ 2017 class. Hits in 3-hole as a sophomore for Hilltoppers, hits from a tall, narrow, open setup, some length to stride, widens out base, gets foot down early, on time, relaxed in box, hands held high, load back smoothly, short, slightly uphill bat path, fluidity to swing, barrel whips through the zone, high finish. Singled hard up the middle to left of second baseman with line drive in first at bat on a 2-0 85 mph fastball. Doesn’t get cheated, RBI double down first base line in second at bat. Took pre-game in left field at first base, arm strength will play at infield corners or outfield corners, frame should carry 195-200 pounds easy in three years, already possesses gap-to-gap power, capable of leaving the yard to pull side, added weight/strength to frame could make him top hitter in Illinois in next three years.
