Top-10 Profiles of 2021: No. 3, Easton O'Neal

As we approach the end of 2021, we're taking account of the PBR Washington player profile pages to determine the players in our backyard whose profiles earned the most attention throughout the year. We're counting down the top-10 profiles in the state that received the most views, starting at 10 and on, concluding our countdown on New Year's Day by revealing the most-viewed profile of the year.

Cracking the top three on our most viewed profiles this year is C Easton O’Neal (West Valley), who’s one of the top 2024 prospects in the Pacific Northwest. O’Neal currently sits at the sixth overall spot on our Washington board for the current sophomore class and he’s inside the top-500 nationally, too. An athletic switch-hitter, O’Neal was recently featured in an article written by our Vice President of Scouting, Shooter Hunt. Here’s what he had to say:

“O’Neal is sure to have college coaches following him closely, moving forward as a switch-hitting catcher with advanced defensive abilities. At 6-foot-1, 165-pounds, there is some present lean, defined strength with room for more, and as that comes there is potential for O’Neal to blossom into a run-producer. The load works fluid from both sides as the hands flow congruently with a leg lift and rock back. The ease of the bat speed thanks to quick hands was noticeable throughout batting practice as he covered the plate with firm contact (94 mph exit velocity) to all fields including some present pull side power from both sides. Behind the plate, soft hands allow O’Neal to be a quality receiver with quietness even while catching unfamiliar arms. The footwork is controlled and smooth with a 74 mph arm producing accurate throws and pop times as low as 2.0. Intriguingly, he also hopped on the mound where he showcased a short, quick arm with the ability to pound the strike zone up to 82 mph with feel for a downer breaking ball. Overall, it was an outstanding first look at a player that is likely a must-follow for many schools next summer.”

Committed to Xavier, O’Neal is set to continuously impress our staff as his high school career progresses. Learn more about him below.
