Maryland / Virginia Scouting Director

The Vault is a periodic series that takes a look back at some of the top talent across the state that have been part of PBR. In just under two years of existence, PBR Virginia/DC has had over 200 event participants commit to colleges, along with the many more that we have seen through our non-stop, boots-on-the-ground approach to scouting across every state we cover. With The Vault, we give a "where they are now", along with the scouting report from the event they attended. 

110Brent Boggs OF/3B Battlefield HS 2017
Virginia Military Institute Commit
Current VA Rank: No. 47
Current Pos. Rank: No. 5

Event Evaluation (2016/2017 Top Prospect Games 11.8.14)
Boggs is a 5-foot-11, 165 pound, and started from a slightly vertical stance with flex in the knees and hands tight to his body. In the round, Boggs had a tendency to have an “uphill” swing plain but exhibited outstanding bat speed for a 2017 grad (85 MPH Exit Velocity). He stayed behind the ball well and showed the ability to finish his swing, getting through the ball consistently. In the field, Boggs showed average arm strength (76 MPH) and the ability to get to the ball. He was an adequate defender that took good routes to the ball and was able to cover ground.
