It's the worst year in recent memory for Kansas high school players. The best of the crop, catcher Derek Norris, got off to a slow start after an overthrow hit him in the head while he was sitting in the dugout. His offensive is ahead of his defense at this point, as he has a lot of power in his 6-foot-1, 220-pound frame. He has enough arm and agility to get the job done behind the plate. He just needs more work as a catcher after playing third base for three years.
