The 2021 JFG participant had one of the bigger hits of the night delivering a 3 run HR to tie the game that Plano West would end up winning in 14 innings. While his position in college will be behind the plate, Morton made several good plays at 3b. He showed the same soft hands at 3rd that he does while catching.  He has more than enough arm strength for the position as well. At the plate, there is plenty of bat speed and he has a lot of projection left in the body.  As he learns to use the whole field and stay inside the ball longer, Morton could hit at a high level.

Morton has some of the quickest hands at the plate for his grade in the state.  He has strong wrists and the ball explodes off his bat when he connects.  As he learns to use his legs more at the plate, he could be a power hitting catcher down the road.  He has a confident approach at the plate and took a very mature round of BP.  Behind the plate, he had a good presence about him catching pitchers he has never seen before.  The Jr. Futures Game participant has a high ceiling and will be an exciting follow.
