INF Henry Kufa (Carlinville, 2023) impressed our staff during the infield portion of the event. The Southern Illinois product displayed soft hands, quick feet, quick exchange and showed an athletic advanced feel moving laterally quickly and efficiently. His arm is loose and his throws had life and plenty of carry; up to 82 mph across. The 5-foot-10, 160-pound, right-handed hitter has a simple, quiet swing and controls the barrel with a whole field approach.
