Ryan Hampe, C, Sandburg, 2018
Illinois-Chicago commit, currently ranked No. 37 in the Illinois’ 2018 class. 6-foot, 200-pound, durable, well-proportioned, right-handed hitting catcher. One of the best all-around catchers in the state. Had a big day with the bat going 3-for-3 with a double and a run scored. Advanced approach, stays within himself and uses the whole field. His first two hits were line-drives into the right-center field gap. Good feel for the barrel and consistently makes hard contact. Bat stays flat through the zone, gets extension through contact. Defensively, quiet receiver, squared setup, flexible in the hips and willing blocker. Strong arm, throws are true and carry, consistently on the bag at second base in between innings; 2.0 pop times.
