Uncommitted Senior Spotlight - INF Drew Helton

As we head into the fall, we are beginning to see tons of 2024 graduates make commitments to play at the next level. Indiana's 2024 class features a deep crop of talent, with plenty of prospects still left on the board. Today, we take a deeper look at '24 INF Drew Helton of Whiteland HS.

A consummate “gamer”, Helton impressed in the batter’s box throughout multiple looks during the summer of 2023. The 6-foot-1, 195 pound corner infielder’s best tool is his right-handed bat, and that tool allows Helton to consistently produce in-game. His swing is super simple with a consistent timing mechanism - a no-strider that coils into the back hip and controls the lower-half during a minimal forward move to allow his bat-to-ball skills to show consistently. Despite hitting out of a no-stride, Helton is able to produce gap-to-gap power with some strength in the bat to go along with outstanding feel for the barrel. On the dirt, Helton offers fundamental actions with sure hands and above average arm strength across the diamond. Helton will be playing for Team Indiana at this weekend's PBR Tournaments - Grand Park Fall Championships & coaches in-need of a '24 bat should give Drew a look.
