Scouting Report

1/12/20 - Uncommitted 2021 OF Bryant Herring (Dutchtown) has made impressive improvements in his entire game since the Future Games. At the plate, he has a simple setup, and a consistent approach. He is steadily progressing from a line drive hitter to one that can drive the ball into the gaps with an easy effort swing, posted a personal-best 91 mph exit velocity off a tee. In the outfield, he is as fundamental as they come, everything works on-line as he fields out front and plays through the ball. His throws are true with back spin and accurate at 85 mph.

The 5-foot-9, 160 pound Dutchtown product showed he has the ability to be a true table setter from the left side.  Herring was on the bases all summer for the East Cobb Astros and gave Team Georgia more of the same. Herring knows his zone, and does not give away an at bat. The quick first step of Herring makes him dangerous from foul pole to foul pole. Defensively Herring enough first step quickness to fit in CF, and is learning his routes on the corners.  Herring does not posses on overwhelming arm, but combined with his accuracy he is more than capable of cutting down an over aggressive baserunner. Herring’s spark plug mentality on the field is the same energy he will bring to a club behind the scenes. Looking forward to seeing where this pesky top of the order bat lands, because somebody is going to get their money's worth in baseball player.
