    As a freshman, Knizner stepped into N.C. State's lineup as the everyday third baseman and performed, though he drew just two unintentional walks. He moved behind the plate as a sophomore and vexes scouts as he's shown improvement defensively while his offensive production has backed up. Knizner has arm strength but needs time to smooth out his receiving and blocking skills, as he's a below-average defender presently. He has good athleticism strength in his 6-foot-1, 200-pound body that produces good raw power, but his lack of selectivity hampers him offensively. His OPS has dropped each of his three seasons with the Wolfpack, and he's an academic All-American; the combination may make him a tough sign as a junior.
