Norris, the 2010 Jackie Robinson Award winner, awarded to a player for his talents both on and off the field, is regarded by most scouts as the top prep player in this year’s draft. He works off his fastball, which typically sits in the 91-94 range, but has been clocked at 96. He throws a changeup, sitting in the low 80s, and slider in the 71-73 range. Both secondary pitches have the potential to be plus offerings. He’s signed a letter of intent to go to Clemson, but unless something changes drastically, he’ll never play collegiate ball. He should be off the board within the Top 10 picks this June.
