SS Brennen Norton (2021, Jacksonville State) has been nothing short of brilliant during his senior campaign as the bat plays at a big- time level. The unquestioned leader of the team, Norton also leads with the bat as well. Small leg kick approach allows him to really use the lower half, creating torque through the hitting zone with backspin off the bat. Norton shows a mostly pull-side approach and has definite strength in the hands with the ability to leave the yard on any swing. 


We are quickly running out of adjectives to describe the way Norton is seeing the ball to start the 2021 season. For the day (doubleheader), Norton was 4-8 with 3 HRs and 4 RBIs, including the game winning homer in the 10th inning. Norton is not just a big power bat as he shows the ability to handle multiple pitches to all facets on the field. His 1st homerun in G2 was a fastball over the heart of the plate that he rocketed over the center field wall. With the game on the line, Norton stayed back on a breaking ball on the inner half and hammered over the fence in left. The future Gamecock can obviously hit for power but can also hit for average as well.


Another productive day for one of the top uncommitted hitters in the state ‘21 class. Ran a sub 7.0 (6.98) 60 yard dash and had the highest exit velo of the day (97 mph off a tee). The glove work at 3B is solid and he can also play 2B and has plenty of arm strength (87 mph across the dirt). Moves well laterally and has no issues making the slow roller play in front of him. The bat plays big time. The swing has some violence in it and there is definite strength in the hands. Slightly open stance with definite tllt in the bat path. Does a nice job keeping the barrel through the hitting zone and really creates backspin off the barrel. Plays the game with a throwback type mentality. Really like his approach to the game.


Very talented infielder that had the highest exit velocity off a tee at the event (96 mph) and the best infield velocity on the day (85 mph) as well as running a sub 7.0 60 yard dash (6.95). The skills with the glove at 3B are solid and he shows a really quick transfer from the glove. No doubt the bat plays big time. He shows some present strength with the hands and does a nice job of staying short and through the hitting zone. Shows juice to all fields with some tilt in the swing plane. Does a nice job creating torque in the lower half and the swing is well synched. Really like this ‘21 grad.


The 3rd baseman was one of the biggest standouts of the weekend. His speed was impressive on the bases. Made all the easy plays and 3rd, and shows the athleticism to play anywhere on the field. Easy, smooth swings that connects consistently. Ideal 1 or 2 hole hitter. Anxious to see where he ends up. A straight up athlete that shows a ton of potential.
