David Wright is a 2008 C with a 6'1'', 200 lb. frame from Aledo, TX who attends Fort Worth Country Day. Has a solid catcher's body with some present strength. Good behind the plate, projects well at the position. His already solid pop times should improve as his footwork does and his in-game throws were accurate. At the plate he has strong hitter's hands and a powerful swing. He has some lift in his swing and the ball comes off his bat well. Will add more power to his swing as he learns to use his entire body better. Loves to be on a baseball field. Committed to TCU. He is a good one.

David Wright is a 2008 C with an athletic 6'1'', 205 lb. frame from Aledo, TX who attends Fort Worth Country Day. David is an extremely hard worker in all aspects of the game. Behind the plate he has a good transfer, good velocity, and is on the bag with his throws. His release comes from an unusual arm angle, but it gets there quick and on the money. His pop time was very fast at 1.90, and he had a solid velocity of 75 mph on his best throw down. He is also solid defensively on the infield, with smooth actions. He plays every position with enthusiasm, and it is clear that this young man really loves the game. He hits with relaxed hands, but has lots of bat movement in his stance. He uses a toe tap trigger and shows pop in his swing. He homered in a showcase game off of a good curveball that he sat on and drove out to left center field. He has present strength throughout and is a patient and disciplined hitter. He is a leader, and is always the first one off the bench to support his teammates. David is also an excellent student.

David Wright is a 2008 C with a 6'1'', 205 lb. frame from Aledo, TX who attends Fort Worth Country Day. He has an athletic build with good present strength. Wright is a recent conversion to full-time catching, a conversion we predicted over two years ago when we first saw him play. He has the tools, build and make up to excel at the position. He received the ball cleanly with strong hands and has the lower body looseness/quickness to play the position. Wright didn't throw especially well in Cincinnati; he has plenty of arm strength but was working with some mechanical issues on his exchange and release. Offensively, Wright uses his very strong hands well in his swing and is a confident, aggressive hitter. He takes the barrell straight to the ball and hits hard line drives to all fields. His hitting style and hand strength translates to all levels of hitting. The one thing Wright does unusual is he wears heavy work gloves to hit with; if he gets a chance to play pro ball a batting glove company needs to make him a project for some new product. Maybe it’s the "Texas" in him. Wright has always been a plus makeup type who is a leader on the field, one of the reasons he fits in so well at catcher. He is an excellent student who has a verbal commitment to TCU.

David Wright is a 2008 SS/C/P from Country Day HS in Aledo, TX, with a 6'1'', 182 lb. frame. We saw him last summer at the Southwest Underclass and he's got bigger and stronger since then. Wright is a very versatile athlete who can play all over the field. While he has quick feet and good balance, he isn't the fastest runner underway at 7.49, which means that he likely profiles best in the future at either third base or catcher. He has the arm strength, quickness and actions to play both those positions well. His agility at third base stands out and he should be a plus defender at that position. Offensively, Wright has a very unothodox approach at the plate but it works for him. He has a big coiling action from a narrow base with busy hands that he holds tight to his body. As he uncoils and explodes to the ball with his swing, he never clears his hands away from his body to contact. He must have exceptionally strong hands, along with quick hands, to swing like this, but we don't see him at a disadvantage against live pitching. The ball explodes off Wright's bat and he shows very impressive loft power. Wright also pitched a couple of innings, showing an 81 mph fastball with a big downer 69 mph curveball from a high 3/4's to overhand release point. Wright located his pitches well, although he has some effort in his drop and drive delivery. He'll be a good secondary pitcher in high school but his future is as a hitter/player. We also have a great appreciation for Wright's makeup; he's a leader type who is always pulling for his teammates and setting a positive example. Not surprisingly, Wright is a 4.0 student with his sights on some exclusive academic schools as well. National Level Follow.

Wright is a 6-1, 175 lb sophomore athlete from Texas who can play all over the field. He's a pure baseball type who has tools and is polished at a young age. Wright literally played 6 positions during the showcase and there is no reason he couldn't play all 3 outfield positions as well. He has top prospect actions both in the infield and behind the plate and plays defense with a confidence and flair that you can't teach. We think his highest ceiling position might be behind the plate, although that's the position he played the least. He is likely to outgrow the middle of the infield but could be a top level defensive third baseman. Offensively, Wright hits out of a narrow stance with high hands and an unusual coiling action that can leave him a bit late against top pitching. He has strong hands and develops plus bat speed in his swing. Wright turns on the ball aggressively and it comes off his bat hard. Wright also pitched a couple of innings and showed he could develop as a pitching prospect as well. He has a fundamentally sound delivery with a short, quick arm stroke that generated a 82-83 mph fastball even after 2 days of playing all over the field. Wright's breaking ball was a 67-69 mph curveball that had good consistent break 12/6 break and he also threw a 70 split type change up. Wright threw strikes and mixed up his pitches well. Wright will be ranked among the top prospects in the 2008 class and is a must follow for top college programs. He's also a 4.0 student with high academic aspirations and shows excellent leadership abilities on the field.. Named to the Top Prospect Game.

David is a 2008 grad from Aledo, Texas with a large, well proportioned frame that should continue to add strength and size for many years. He showed us the ability to play all over the field at the showcase. David handled himself well behind the plate catching older pitchers, showing some hand softness and a quick release that had his pop times down to 2.04, very good for a freshman. He also has the athletic ability and speed to play in the infield and outfield. Offensively, David has surprising strength in his bat right now. He has good gather and rhythm through the ball and can get the bat head into the zone and can control it. He had one especially nice at bat in the showcase games that ended up in an extra base hit up the right centerfield alley. David also impressed us with his hustle and enthusiasm for the game, he gives everything on the field. On the mound, David had a 75 mph fastball and a 66 mph curveball that had some tightness. David's mechanics were very raw and it looks like he's much more comfortable in the field or with a bat in his hands, but his developing arm strength and athletic ability should give him a chance to be a successful pitcher for many years. David is a good young follow who we will enjoy watching develop over the next few years.
