5.16.15 - Louisville recruit, currently ranked No. 12 in Illinois’ 2016 class, No. 154 overall. Left-handed hitter has arguably the best plate approach in the state, regardless of class.

Advanced bat and approach, 3-hole hitter for Central, hits from balanced stance, hands start low, little hand movement, extremely relaxed in the box, short, level bat path, ability to back spin line drives, 4-for-8 in two games, three singles and a double. Looked mostly to pull throughout the day, but one single in the hole to short. Defensively ranges well side to side, made several nice plays ranging to glove hand. Shorter arm action, high ¾ slot, arm plays at 2B, quick hands on the double play in pregame, accurate with throws, not a cannon, but enough carry to make play up the middle and turn double play.

Hits from the left side, balanced stance, short stride, smooth loading action, tremendous balance throughout.

Defensively attacks the baseball on the infield, excellent angle, plays through the baseball. 6.94 runner. Arm plays at 74 mph across the diamond. Snider is one of the more advanced hitters in his class, a high contact hitter will hit for high average, high follow 2016 prospect.
7/23/13 - Snider is a significantly improved player from the previous PBR event. He’s hard-nosed and showed a high baseball IQ at the Top Prospect Games, taking the extra bases and recording six stolen bases. He always seems to be in the right spot, and can turn the double play well. Left-handed hitting 5-foot-7, 160-pound middle-infielder showed advanced defensive actions fielding the position with soft hands and athleticism. Snider creates athletic pre-pitch rhythm and sprays the ball at the plate with bat speed and balance throughout.
