Player Spotlight: 2021 SS Marcus Smith (All Hallows HS)

Dan Cevette
President, New York

Our "Player Spotlights" will be reserved for any prospect across New York who's abilities on the field have made some noteworthy recent buzz. Possibly a recent event where a Top Performer Spotlight article is just not enough, or maybe a recent commitment to a major program. Whatever it is, I'll (Dan Cevette) be going in-depth on the player spotlighted below with personal insight and honest feedback. Let's get started.

Marcus Smith SS / OF / All Hallows , NY / 2021

CEVETTE'S QUICK HIT: Only a freshman, yet oozing projection from a slim athletic build. He's quick and rangy, sleek with the glove, the bat is loose and fluid with present bat-speed. He's already catching the eye of our national scouts and after the NYS Games and maybe even the Future Games in AUG - watch out. When his body fills-out and he naturally gets stronger the sky's the limit for Smith.

SCOUTING REPORT: The 2021 middle infield prospect really impressed at our February 21st event at the House of Sports event.  he ran a 7 flat 60 yard dash showing off fast-twitch and athleticism. at the place we used a semi crouched stance that's wide, hands relaxed above his back shoulder, barrel is parallel to the ground. On the pitch weight shifts to his backside, smooth load short and compact, direct to the ball with a slight uphill consistent path, 87 mph exit velocity and it's low effort. Defensively, very active lower half, glides to the ball, extremely loose quick hands out in front, fast funnel, transfer to his hand is quick to a high 3/4 release, the arm strength is just average right now but expect that to really climb as he gets more physically mature, just a really good looking middle infield prospect with all the right tools already in place.
