08/17/2014 - College PREP - Champaign, IL Cooper is a talented, 2-way player (C/2B) who has an athletic build. Behind the dish, he sits in well with soft/quiet actions. Footwork is quick to get around pitches in the dirt as he centers the ball off of his chest. Ball is quick from glove to hand as he gains ground toward his target. He puts the ball on the bag with pop times of 1.98. At 2B, Cooper shows quick/active footwork in his approach. He works around the ground ball and presents his glove out in front. He turns the DP quickly and works in-line toward his target. With the bat, this RHH delivers the barrel on a level path as he connects and drives it. He uses the opposite field and hustles out of the box. More extension through contact will help to increase power at the plate. A 2016 grad - Hitchens has a bright future in the game.
