Uncommitted Spotlight: Black Putting Up Big Numbers

Clayton Black RHP / 1B / Miamisburg, OH / 2019

MIAMISBURG - If there is one word to describe Clayton Black, big comes to mind.

At 6-5 and 258 pounds, the Miamisburg junior is not just your average-sized high schooler.

“I’ve always been a bigger guy,” said Black, noting that his growth plates are still open and doctors expect him to grow another two inches. “It can be a disadvantage competing with smaller, quicker and more agile guys but it’s an advantage because I’ve got a lot more power than they do.”

But size is far from the only thing big about Black. He has number to go along with his build.

Black has an exit velo that has reached 105 - the best in the state - while his pitching velocity topped at 91 over the weekend.

It has drawn the attention of colleges.
