Uncommitted Spotlight : 2021 Casey GibbsOctober 4, 2018
Casey Gibbs – 2021 grad out of Olney, MD, really athletic kid that posses a lot of tools. A left handed hitting catcher and infielder that seems to bring a lot of energy. Two position guy with a compact left handed swing. Really has feel for the barrel, when he comes to the plate you can expect hard contact to the middle of the field. Can really swing it and a plus runner. Showed good ability behind the plate with exceptional footwork and blocking ability. Also showcased a strong arm posting a 1.96 pop time during this weekends tournament at UVA. As a hitter, he starts his hands low with the barrel pointed straight up with his hands relaxed, front foot slightly open, gets separated while loading the front hip. Keeps the front side closed until hands fire through the zone. Strong hands create a quick whippy bat action with solid extension. Shows good barrel control and consistent loud contact. One of the more polished uncommitted players we have seen this fall at Dynamic Events. It will be interesting to see where this talented prospect will end up going.
