Height: 6-1   Weight: 175   Hometown: Teaneck, NJ (Teaneck HS)   Class: 2021

2021 Teaneck, New Jersey shortstop Aries Samek (6-1 175) announced a commitment to Clemson on Sunday.

Samek hit .455 with five home runs, 13 RBIs and 20 stolen bases last season (66 at-bats). He's hit .469 over the last two years.

He is rated a top-50 prospect nationally by Perfect Game.

His Perfect Game profile (2018): Frame projects for additional strength while maintaining athleticism. Primary shortstop with smooth, fluid footwork while ranging for and working through the baseball. Clean funnel out front and maintained momentum towards the baseball with working through exchange. Displayed very good arm strength with accurate carry from a three-quarters slot, topped at 93 miles per hour. Right handed hitter with an upright, even stance and simple leg lift trigger. Shifts into contact well with linear lower half actions. Inside hand path to baseball with a line drive barrel plane through extension. Showed present bat speed with the ability to throw barrel head to contact with aggression. Utilized a gap to gap approach and generated loud contact with good jump off the barrel to both gaps.
