    Smith has one of the most explosive swings in this year's class. He's a righthanded hitter with plus raw power that comes from lightning-quick hands and a long swing. He has a lot of moving parts to his stroke, including a leg kick and a late load with a deep back-elbow swoop. These moving parts lead him to swing and miss often when facing top arms at the 2016 East Coast Pro Showcase, but he did a better job of making contact in the spring. Smith is a strong, sturdy defender behind the plate. He's got solid footwork behind the plate and handles wild pitchers well. His arm plays near average. The biggest question mark on Smith is how much he will hit at the next level. If he hits enough for his power to play, Smith could develop into a power-hitting catcher with strong intangibles. He is committed to East Carolina.
