Croft is an exciting prospect. A pure athlete behind the dish who can swing it. He is quick around pitches in the dirt, centering/deadening them off of his chest. A quick exchange and cannon for an arm; runners will not want to test. At the plate, barrel delivery is short/quick with fast speed, resulting in hard contact. Ball jumps off of his barrel as he crushes it and drives it to all parts of the field. Noah will be a run producer with his ability to drive to the ball to the gaps. Only a 2015 grad - Noah Croft is a name that you'll be hearing a lot over the next couple of years.
