The top uncommitted bat in the state. It won’t be long before Thorpe is committed and schools need to jump on this kid, as he is a brute strong 6-1 190 and can frame and receive the ball well. With an arm velo of 80 and have seen better, Thorpe shows off an avg arm in the OF, and produced exit speeds as high as 95.6 in BP and there I’ve seen better as well. The bat has been on fire all summer/fall, and at the Fall Prospect ID, he showed a semi wide open stance, and his front knee/foot is synced well with his hands as he lifts his front foot and from a flat set of the bat, he turns the barrel to a 45 into the load phase, then softly lands the front foot and takes a short powerful compact stroke into a powerful two hand around the back shoulder finish. Athletic for a catcher and can play multiple positions, to get him out of the crouch and keep him athletic. The bat is the carrying tool and one to watch as I believe he’s gonna have a big junior year for the Flyers of Dixie High.

UNCOMMITTED - A lean athletic strong 601 190 with a defined muscled overall look w/some twitch behind the plate and can run for a catcher. The bat and the arm play and carry to the next level. Projects confidence in the box w/a semi wider than shoulder width, slightly open stance and carries the bat over his back shoulder at a semi flat angle. Has flex to his knees and takes a short synced up stride as the hands load at a 45 w/good separation and balance. Has hand speed and can hit velocity. Takes a short, quick compact stroke thru the plane of attack into a whippy two hand finish. The ball jumps line to line and can leave the big part of the field. Is a bit raw mechanically in his setup behind the plate and needs to improve his receiving, but has twitch in his lower ½ and is quick to drop and keeps balls in front. Can pick tough pitches and spring to back pick. His throws have carry through the bag and at times flashes a slightly better than avg arm w/avg pop times. A 7.03/60 that’s plenty enough. A versatile defender that also plays 1B and can hold down LF with work. Plays for CBA Summit (UT) in the summer and the NV/UT Braves Scout Team in the fall. Has also played over the past 2 summers with the Ohio Warhawks. Won’t be uncommitted for long.
