Ryan Jackson is a 2006 shortstop from Miami Springs, FL with a lean athletic build at 6-2, 170 lbs. He is one of the country's best defensive players, if not the best, of his age and he showed it in Atlanta. Jackson has excellent balance in the field and very smooth, soft hands. He has complete control of his body when fielding and throwing and can throw on the run with as much accuracy and velocity as when he's planted. There are no bad hops when Jackson is playing shortstop and he's especially good at charging the ball. If he has a defensive flaw, it's that he doesn't have the classic gun from the hole, but he has the knack of making the spectacular play along with making the difficult play look routine. Offensively, Jackson is a switch hitter who has really been working hard on his left handed swing. He still tends to hit around the ball but his bat speed and bat head skills have improved. Right handed, Jackson has very good power potential once he starts filling out and the ball is jumping off his bat now. His bat takes back seat to his defense right now but Jackson has consistently shown he can hit good pitching with wood and he's a bit overlooked in this regard. Top level prospect who will garner loads of professional attention next spring.

Jackson is a 6-2 junior shortstop from Miami and one of the top infield prospect at the National Showcase in late December. Jackson has always been known as a top level defensive player because of his exceptionally smooth actions and soft, quick hands. Those were on display in Fort Myers. The big and continually developing difference in Jackson has been with his bat. He’s still very slender at around 165 lbs but Jackson has very strong hands and generates very, very good bat speed from the right side. His swing is fluid and hard with excellent extension through the ball. Jackson crushed nearly every pitch in batting practice and followed up with three game hits. He’s a very aggressive hitter who is going to jump on the first pitch he can handle. Jackson is also working on switch hitting and shows some promise from the left side. His swing is somewhat grooved but he has bat speed and good extension. The one thing that Jackson has to work on is his straight away running speed and we’re told he is working with a speed coach regularly on that. Jackson is a yard rat who plays as much baseball as any player in the country according to scouts in Florida we talk to. He is also a good student.

Ryan Jackson -- Jackson is a very slim and wiry sophomore shortstop from Florida who could well be the top overall defensive player in his class right now. When he adds some strength to his projectable frame, he’s going to be even better. Jackson has all the actions and quickness of highest level shortstops. Throw out the velocity readings and 60 times on him. Jackson has exceptionally quick feet that keep him well balanced and an equally quick release, usually from a low arm angle. Jackson’s arm strength grades out as above average right now but you’ll never see the raw velocity readings because he’s always charging or moving and getting rid of the ball right away. Reminds us a little of Jonathan Fulton (3rd rounder from VA) One senses that Jackson looks at defense as his show, just as some of the top Latin shortstops do. When he gets stronger, Jackson is going to be a solid hitter, too. He has a very nice load and balanced stride and is short and quick to the ball. Jackson makes consistent solid contact and stays inside the ball well. He’s a good student, too.
