Will Taylor, OF, Dutch Fork HS, 2021
Clemson commit for football and baseball.  6-foot, 180 pounds.  Advanced athlete with strength and elite quickness present.  Solid centerfielder with natural actions catching the ball.  Showed ease on balls at him as well as balls on the run.  Good awareness for the field around him, finding and making plays around the wall, as well as communicating with corner outfielders.  Average to slightly below arm on the pro scale showing a clean arm path and over-the-top slot.  Easy transitions and release.  Arm strength will continue to improve in the coming years.  Right handed hitter works from a tall, athletic base.  Good pre-pitch rhythm.  Average stride.  Hands work with a small load, leveraging the bat head to a vertical, or slightly cocked, position.  Good strike zone recognition.  Showed an ability to see spin early out of the hand, and stay on his plan.  Elite bat speed with good barrel feel.  Has aggression when he decides to let it go.  Balls on the barrel come off with authority.  Pull and extension oriented.  Ran a 4.03 on a full swing ground ball to SS in game.
