Clemson adds a premier ‘22 talent to the class late, as @OLSMBaseball star Jack Crighton will follow Bakich/Schnabel south. Premium athlete, true defensive versatility, elite hit tool projection w/ a ton of power on the way as well. @PGCollegeBall @PG_OhioValley @ColdWeatherBats https://t.co/YHCrv7ui3G— Brian Sakowski (@B_Sakowski_PG) June 30, 2022
‘22 Jack Crighton (@OLSMBaseball) with a hard liner into RF that was run down. One of the top pure hitters in the country continues to show the barrel skills, plus athlete/runner with middle field defensive projection. #PGDraft pic.twitter.com/H2SU6UjTL8— Perfect Game Ohio Valley (@PG_OhioValley) June 18, 2022
Great piece of hitting from ‘22 Jack Crighton, hammering a cut FB away into the RCF gap for a 2B. Really high-end bat to ball w/ plus speed and defensive versatility. #PGDraft #Michigan commit. @B_Sakowski_PG @vcervinoPG pic.twitter.com/JbdfrdKP4J— Perfect Game Ohio Valley (@PG_OhioValley) April 19, 2022
Here’s another rope from Crighton, 4.5 on the turn for a leg double on this liner. Crighton was one off the biggest risers on the new #PGDraft board, and these hitting tools are the main drivers. #GoBlue commit. @vcervinoPG https://t.co/EEfDSkCBgU pic.twitter.com/QpXWE8gjLS— Brian Sakowski (@B_Sakowski_PG) April 19, 2022
