High School: Arcadia HS, Phoenix
Ht.: 6'4" / Wt.: 230 lbs

It's a down year for high school talent from Arizona, with Huff projected to be the top Arizona prep player taken in the draft. The Arcadia High catcher, already sizable at 6-foot-4 and 215 pounds, led the state in home runs in a senior year in which he significantly boosted his draft stock. Huff doesn't have great bat speed but shows good raw power, gets good leverage in his swing and has feel for hitting. Behind the plate, Huff frames and blocks well. He has a slow arm action but at least an average arm when he throws, with pop times typically around two seconds. He's a fundamentally sound player. Huff is committed to nearby Grand Canyon University, but is expected to be signable.
