2014: Collett has a big, strong frame at 6-foot-1, 215 pounds and it shows up at the plate. The LHH takes a good, easy swing that produces raw power to all fields. Plus bat speed. Handles velocity very well. Collett isn’t a lock to stay behind the plate, but he has shown improvements back there. He is verbally committed to Kentucky.
MWFG 8/16/13: catcher from Terre Haute North (2016), is one of the most impressive hitters in the country in the 2016 class. Collett’s Future’s Game was less than what he wanted in game. The left handed catcher drew a lot of bad matchups against lefties and combined that with trying to do to much. Collett’s BP was jaw dropping at times. The lefty has plus plus bat speed and the rare ability to hit for power. The other thing Collett did was showed how much work he has put in behind the plate. A lot of people, me included, thought he was going to move to first base when he got to college. I have changed my opinion. Collett has good hand strength behind the plate and his exchange has become much cleaner than this winter. Collett is becoming more and more serviceable behind there. Collett is a premium prospect in the 2016 class.
2/23/13: 6-foot, 200-pound left-handed hitting catcher out of Terre Haute North HS. Collett solidified himself as the top hitter in the 2016 class, and possesses tools that could possibly rank him as a top hitter in any of the current classes. While hitting from the left side, he displayed loose hands and quick bat speed with plenty of juice. Collett left the event with the highest exit velo recorded at 96 mph. His primary position is behind the plate, where he showed advanced actions and the ability to receive the ball well during the bullpen sessions. His best pop time was a 2.0. As a freshman, there is still development that needs to take place, but there is no denying he possesses the tools necessary to be a high-level national prospect.
