2/24/21

Physical 6-foot-1, 215-pound catcher. Michigan commit. The right-handed hitter displays a balanced, square setup with rhythm. Quick line-drive swing, generating some lift and making consistent hard contact to all fields. Took one of the better BP rounds on the day, spraying line-drives to all fields. 92 mph exit velocity off the tee. Behind the plate, has above-average catch and throw skills, utilizing a quick release and footwork. 1.89-1.96 pop times. 79 mph arm strength with solid accuracy to the bag. Ran a 7.25 60-yard dash.

Ranked No. 6 in Minnesota and one of the top uncommitted prospects in the Midwest. 6-foot, 205-pound, broad-shouldered, physical, right-handed hitter; primary catcher but showed plenty of athleticism to handle third base. Longo made a number of plays, including starting a double play turn, showing a quick glove-to-hand exchange and feel to throw from multiple slots. Offensively, his strong/physical frame stands out in the box as he swings with intent and hunts the fastball. Longo is a high-level 2021 still on the market.

7/07/20

Longo excelled with short footwork and a quick release which produced 1.88-2.01 pop times behind the dish, despite fringe average arm strength (75 mph). His throws were on-line and accurate; the most accurate of all catchers at the event. At 6-foot, 205 pounds there was some stiffness to his gait and too much side-to-side motion during his initial acceleration as he sprinted to 7.22 sixty. Despite some effort and stiffness to his swing, the right-handed hitter displayed a balanced approach and solid bat strength (88 mph exit velocity of tee). He hit against a firm front side with good lift and high finish to his stroke.
