2021 MLB DraftAthletic and without a glaring weakness, Norby is considered a safe pick by the industry. His hard work started to pay off in 2020, when he raced out to a .403/.439/.500 start before the season was canceled. And he only got better in year three at ECU, hitting .415/.484/.659 with 15 home runs and 51 RBIs. He has a quick, compact right-handed stroke and the ability to drive the ball with authority to the middle-away part of the ballpark. He’s so strong that he can let the ball get deep and has great hand-eye coordination, a disciplined approach and sneaky pop in his bat--the type of power likely to produce 10-plus home runs on an annual basis in the big leagues. He’s also a really good defender at second and he can run, totalling 18 stolen bases this season.

Has consistently played well with eyes on him.  Defensively, flashes enough arm to stay on the left side.  Plays shortstop with confidence and some aggression, taking charge on several tweener pop-flies.  Listed at 5-foot-9, 155 pounds, a right-handed hitter works from an athletic stance, slightly open with a smooth load back and short stride.  Showed strength hitting a double to pull-side off the wall.  Flashed quickness with the bat and a feel for the barrel throughout the day.

At 5-foot-9, 155 pounds, plays SS with a calm demeanor.  Consistently catching the ball, his hands work efficiently and funnel to the mid-section before transitioning to a low arm slot that showed carry and accuracy.  Flashed athleticism and an ability to change slots on a charge play.  Offensively it is a basic setup that sprays the ball all over the field from a compact swing with average quickness.  Norby also pitched, utilizing a simple delivery that flooded the zone with his fastball ranging 81-84.
