Kieboom comes from a baseball family; his older brother Spencer is a prospect in the Nationals' system, and his brother Trevor plays at Georgia. Carter is the best prospect of the brood. He showed impressive timing and bat speed at the plate throughout much of the showcase circuit leading up to his senior year, though he had a rough week at the WWBA tournament in Jupiter, Fla. This spring, Kieboom showed impressive first-step quickness and range at shortstop, leading some evaluators to believe that he can stick at the position, at least early in his career. Kieboom's selective approach offensively is ahead of his years, but not necessarily conventional for his gap-to-gap skill set. He has some rough edges to him, but has done enough to push himself into day one consideration. Earlier in his high school career, he pitched ambidextrously, though his future is a shortstop. Kieboom is committed to Clemson.
