A two-sport star committed to Louisiana State as both an outfielder and four-star cornerback, Hampton has plenty of rawness to iron out of his game. He excelled with the bat throughout the summer, however, showing a glimpse of his high upside and intriguing toolset. A 6-foot, 210-pound righthanded hitter, Hampton has more than enough power and speed potential to make an impact at the plate. Defensively, he has natural arm strength, but he’ll need to work on cleaning up both his arm action and footwork and also improve his jumps and routes on fly balls.
