Scouting Report
Ryan Simmons, SS, Victor HS, NY (2016)
Simmons stands 5-foot-11, 175-pounds with an athletic built frame. From the infield Simmons shows the makings of a next-level player. He shows above average arm strength at 84 mph, from a high-3/4 slot with deep clean arm action. He really gets through his throws and finishes out in front. He fields the ball low and athletic, glove face in proper position. He shows a quick funnel, clean exchange and smooth footwork.  At the plate he sets up slightly open, hands relaxed by his back ear. On the pitch he shifts his weight back, knee lift for timing, lands slightly open with his toe. Short path to the ball, sightly inclined barrel through the zone, great extension out in front, high balanced finish. 83 mph exit velocity off a tee (wood bat). 7.1 60 time showing athleticism.

Analysis
Simmons impressed in late Dec. showing next-level tools from the infield and with the bat. He's built athletically but could hold more weight. He looks well trained and clean when he takes infield, smooth glove with a plus arm. His bat shows signs of gap power due to his athletic relaxed hands. Simmons will be on full display Feb. 15 at our Preseason All-State Event in Oswego, NY.
