Hissey's brother and father played college baseball, so he had no trouble dropping basketball even though he could have played shooting guard for a mid-major college hoops program. An above-average runner with good instincts, Hissey has added about 20 pounds of muscle to his 6-foot frame in the past year, and though his power is below-average currently, he projects as average or slightly better. He's an aggressive hitter who has a good feel for the strike zone, stays on breaking balls well and hits hard line drive to all fields. He's a promising defender in center field but needs to improve his routes. One scout projected him as a right fielder down the line and compared him to Paul O'Neill for his game as well as his hard-nosed approach. Hissey is an excellent student, and a club will likely have to take him in the top three rounds to buy him out of a commitment to Virginia.
