Okey has spent much of his amateur career in the spotlight, serving three stints on USA Baseball national teams before college then playing for the collegiate national team both summers while with Clemson. Okey has started in every Clemson game since he walked on campus, and he was a co-captain for the Tigers his sophomore year. Scouts rave about his makeup and leadership, but he doesn't have one particular standout tool. Okey is at least an average receiver with an average arm. He hasn't hit for as much power as scouts would like and has had swing-and-miss issues throughout his college career. He's added weight to what was a lean body out of high school but might have lost some flexibility in doing so. However, Okey's polish, makeup and the sum of his tools give him the chance to be a solid pro catcher.
