USC picked up their 10th commitment for the 2016 class and the second of the week when 3B Riley Hogan (6-3 185) of Orlando announced his pledge to the Gamecocks. Here’s the scouting report on Hogan by PerfectGame.com:
Tall slender athletic build, lots of physical projection. Switch-hitter, better bat speed and more natural flow from the left side, is quick and short to the ball left handed with good lower half use, pull hitter left handed who gets good separation and extension out front. Bit more rotational from the right side with less shift into contact and a bit longer path to the ball, still has bat speed and strength, just not as much. Legitimate switch-hitter. 7.23 runner, tall step by step actions in the infield, long arm action with developing arm strength, also plays the outfield. Offense is ahead of his defense at present. Excellent student.
