A physical righthanded hitter, Knight has received plenty of attention this spring thanks to an impressive and impactful bat. A 6-foot, 205-pound catcher and infielder, Knight showed power potential last summer on the showcase circuit, regularly homering in batting practice at multiple big events. Scouts are split on his true hitting ability, but those highest on him believe he’s one of the better hitters in the region. Defensively, Knight has no obvious home. He’s played a number of positions, including third base and catcher, and he has the arm strength and athleticism to potentially make either work. There are some scouts who think he’ll wind up needing to move to first base, however. Committed to Duke, Knight could make it to campus, where scouts might wind up having a better idea of his overall profile in three years, but there’s enough interest from teams that he could get drafted on Day 2.
