12/27/2015 - Under Armour Baseball Factory Recruiting Classic Thornton is a 2017 OF with current physical size and strength that had a quality showing at the Recruiting Classic. Defensively, Harrison plays at a comfortable pace as he works through the baseball and shows efficient footwork. The hands are sure on the catch and the momentum stays directional to the target as the throws come out on plane and will add additional carry through developing a higher arm slot to avoid tail to throws. At the plate, Harrison shows strong hands to generate bat whip through the zone and should keep working to avoid an early top hand roll. There is balance as Thronton stays between his legs to hit well and will get the backside through more if he is able to start a bit narrower and work through a stride-load complex to avoid getting the backside stuck as he drives through contact. A coachable, hard-working player, Thornton should be set up for a strong 2016 season.
