Schobel is listed at 5-foot-10, 170-pounds and he is an absolute ball of energy on the field. Had a chance to watch him in high school at Walsingham Academy and not much has changed. The athleticism, high IQ, and versatility that he displays on the field is fun to watch. At the plate Schobel starts from a slightly open stance, hands are relaxed, and he loads back in sync with the pitcher. Hands are short to contact and does a nice job matching planes with the swing. Schobel reached base in all four at bats, including back to back doubles in the middle two at bats. In his second at bat he turned on the pitch for a double down the third base line and followed it up with a double to deep left center on a 3-1 pitch in his third at bat. Not much swing and miss on the day and appeared to have solid plate discipline. In his fourth and final at bat he worked an 0-2 count and turned it into a walk after fouling off a few pitches and did not chase on a couple of breaking balls down. Above average runner, turning out a 4.57 and a 4.55 turn time on his doubles. Defensively Schobel played shortstop the entire first game. In pregame and in-between innings he displayed his ability to defend and throw on the run. He made it a point to vary slots, throw on the run, and change angles of throws to display his versatility. Soft hands, quick and clean exchange on pivots, and accuracy across with average-above average arm strength. Long term probably more suited for second base, but is more than capable of holding his own at shortstop.


Cape Cod- Put together a strong summer with a .306 batting average, good for second on the team. He's a front foot hitter with strong hand/eye. He's a bit undersized at 5-foot-10, 185 pounds, but he can drive the ball and has been an impact hitter so far in his short college career. As a true freshman for the Hokies this past spring he slashed .279/.359/.441. He's also a dynamic athlete who could play a variety of positions if asked, but he's a natural middle infielder who can pick it. Like Wallace, Schobel will likely be a 2022 draft-eligible by age in what looks to be a very strong class soph-eligibles.

Preseason All-State 2/17/18

Schobel is 5-10 with an athletic frame that has plenty of projection left to it, he hits from the right side from an open athletic stance. Strides on line, loads back with a wrap, has rhythm to his swing. Explosive lower half and keeps some balance. Short and quick to ball, works slightly uphill with a whippy bat, very strong at contact with good extension. Showed good approach working middle of the field and barrel awareness, has doubles power with potential to continue to develop more, exit velocity was 91. On the infield, clean feet, rounds the baseball and fields with soft hands and a wider base. Works through the ball, clean exchange, throws from a high three-quarters arm slot with a longer arm action and some effort, infield velocity was 85. Ran a 4.28 home to first.

5.22.17: Compact athletic frame. Quick twitch athletic with versatility across the diamond. Hits from an open setup. Smooth load to hitting position. Aggressive swing with a short path and quick hands at the plate. Quick arm action with some carry across the diamond on throws. Took to the mound and was up to 81 sitting 79-80 in his relief appearance. One to keep an eye on with his quickness and athleticism in the 2020 class.
