    Longhi was a two-way standout for nationally ranked Venice High, which he helped to a Florida 7-A championship and could go both ways for Louisiana State, as he has bumped the low 90s as a lefthander. For pro scouts, he's a corner bat prospect as the rare righthanded-hitting, lefthanded-throwing corner outfielder. Longhi has good raw power from the right side, but scouts debate his knack for hitting and ability to catch up to good velocity. He frequently hit in the lower half of a stacked Venice lineup. He's a below-average runner who could be limited to left field or first base down the line in spite of his strong arm. Scouts who believe in Longhi's bat see him as a potential top-five-rounds pick, but his signability could drop him down.
