Over the next few weeks, our staff will periodically dive into each of our recently updated rankings and spotlight key players in each class. Today, we take a look at an uncommitted, physical backstop who opened a ton of eyes this summer at our Maryland Top Prospect Games and our Maryland State Games. 

 

Not only do the metrics jump out (94 mph exit velo, 73.4 max bat speed, 1.98-2.09 pop times), but the projection and polish at the dish makes Hughes one of the top uncommitted players in the MD/DE 2024 class. Possessing a strong 6 foot 190 pound frame, Hughes impacts the game in multiple facets. At the dish, the strength is present to the pull side, showcasing it well at our Top Prospect Games with a three run homerun to left field during live game action. The hands work quick with whippy barrel action, creating consistent loft to the gaps and alleys. Defensively, the feet are active and gain ground extremely well on throws to the bag, showcasing accuracy and arm strength.
