Rizzo dazzled on the showcase circuit, especially at Perfect Game National and East Coast Pro, displaying a plus lefthanded hit tool and excellent feel for the barrel. With his stocky 5-foot-11, 215-pound frame, Rizzo shows plus raw power in batting practice that plays closer to average power in games. He's the starting shortstop at Oakton High in Vienna, Va., but scouts aren't sure where his body and defensive skill set fit best. He has experience playing third base and has worked out for teams as a catcher, although his long arm action hampers his throwing from behind the plate, and he could potentially end up at first base. A South Carolina commit, Rizzo should entice teams with his natural hitting ability but will need to find a position.
