Drew Longley is a 2007 C with a 6'3'', 170 lb. frame from Lutz FL, who attends Sickles HS. He has a tall and lean frame with long arms and legs that don't show much present strength. We've had Longley at many events in the past year and consider him one of the premium defensive catcher we've seen in the 2007 class. He as excellent arm strength and a very balanced, quick release that produces accurate throws that are consistently under 2.00 to second base and as low as 1.86. Longley has good athletic quickness behind the plate and shifts and receives the ball well. Offensively, Longley has the physical skills to hit and hit with power but is mechanically raw at present. He leans way back during his set up and spins around the ball while his bat drags behind. We've seen flashes of power from Longley as he gets his leverage and strength behind the ball but his balance issues keep him from being a consistent hitter. Longley's defense is going to carry him a long way and the adjustments and improvements he makes offensively will dtermine just how far he goes. Longley is also an excellent student off the field.

Drew Longley is a 2007 C from Sickles in Lutz, FL, with a 6'2'', 170 lb. frame. He has a long limbed projectable body with good looseness and some wiry strength. Longley has very good arm strength behind the plate and threw 78 mph during drills. His best pop time was 1.95 and he threw 2.13 to throw out a runner in a game. Longley's throws are relaxed and unrushed, which makes them very accurate. His arm stroke is a bit long at present but his quick lower half and his arm strength more than make up for that. His defensive actions are very good overall. At the plate, Longley hits out of a very wide stance with a short, slashing swing. He has very good bat speed and can back spin the ball and make it carry well to the gaps. A little narrower stance could free up Longley's hips to get more rotation, which could lead to more bat speed and power in the future. Longley showed good bat head skills and squared up on the ball consistently. He's very projectable as a hitter with his lean build and current skills. Longley is also an excellent student. He'll rank among the better catchers in the 2007 class and still has plenty of room for improvement. Top Level Follow.
