With the summer recruiting season in full swing, here are ten catchers for college coaches to look at. 


C / 2B / REAGAN, TX / 2018

5-foot-10, 175-pound, athletic, high-waisted muscular frame. Killeen had one of the best all-around performances at the DFW Top Prospect Games. He ran a 7.16-second 60, had an exit velocity of 88 mph, then threw 82 mph on the infield. Last but not least, he threw 79 mph from behind the plate with consistent and accurate throws on a line to second base with pop times of 1.93-2.03. His natural athleticism translates behind the plate with good mobility. During batting practice he showed off power from the right side, driving balls to the pull side gap. He starts from a slightly open stance with a positive bat wrap as he loads with relaxed rhythm to generate a strong, quick hand path. Barrel stays in the zone a long time as he releases the barrel with some lift. Killeen is a dynamic player that has the ability to play multiple positions and be an accomplished hitter at the collegiate level.






We have seen Dickson numerous times this spring and summer and each time he gets better. He has a projectable, lean frame at 6-foot-3, 175-pounds. Behind the plate he shows advanced, easy, receiving skills and catches a quality high school pitching staff at Marcus. He has solid lower-half mobility, and good arm strength at 74 mph. The rising senior runs well for a catcher at 7.05-second 60-yard dash. Most recently in a summer game for his D-BAT team, Dickson recorded two knocks, including a double and had three quality at-bats. With his projectable frame, already solid receiving skills, and arm strength, Dickson's best baseball is ahead of him. High Academic student.





C / 3B / HOME SCHOOL, TX / 2018

Projectable, high-waisted 6-foot-2, 180-pound frame with plenty of room to add strength. Wolff started the day by running a 7.03-second 60-yard dash, and followed that up with a solid round of batting practice. The left-handed hitter works from a tall, balanced stance with his hands set high above his back shoulder. He lowers his hands as he lifts into a high leg kick, then lands with leverage and athleticism as he delivers the barrel. Gap approach with more power to come in the future as he finishes the barrel with ease. Lots of hard contact as he peppered line drives up the middle. Defensively, Wolff has a strong arm behind the plate at 79 mph, and pop times of 1.97-2.16. With his projectable frame, arm strength and athleticism, Wolff will be a quality sign for some lucky program.
