Reetz has a chance to be the highest-drafted Nebraska high school position player, a distinction held by third-rounder Scott Bream in 1989. He is an athletic three-sport star who was a vital offensive cog for Team USA (.429/.500/.714)and won MVP honors at the Perfect Game All-American Classic. The righthanded-hitter has a strong track record of bat-to-ball skills on the showcase circuit with a quick bat and direct path to the ball. Reetz has tremendous strength through his hands and forearms, allowing him to drive the ball to all fields. The 6-foot, 206-pounder has a strong, athletic build that should produce at least average power. Reetz has an above-average, accurate arm behind the plate and possesses soft hands, blocking ability and athleticism. He is a high-intensity gamer who hustles and is an asset behind the plate. Reetz, who is athletic for the position but is a below-average runner, provides positional versatility with the ability to play the outfield corners and run his fastball into the low 90s on the mound. Reetz, who has led his team to consecutive state championships, is committed to Nebraska, where his father played linebacker for Tom Osborne.
