Aside from pitchers Devin Williams and Jake Brentz, who factor into the top three rounds, Murphy might be the most signable high school prospect in Missouri and thus could be the third one drafted. He has all the raw tools teams look for in a catcher, a 6-foot-2, 215-pounder with the strength in his forearms and hands for power and in his arm to throw basestealers out. He'll need to adapt to better competition, as he has a long uppercut swing from the right side of the plate. His receiving needs refinement as well. Murphy's arm plays well on the mound too, with a fastball clocked in the low 90s that leads some clubs to consider him as a pitcher. He has committed to Southern Illinois.
