Scouting Report: Kyle Crick, RHP, Sherman (TX) HS (2011 Draft)

November 30, 2010

I had a brief look at Texas right-hander Kyle Crick over the summer. I liked him. Yes, I did. So did TCU, who scooped some of the other Texas schools to land his commitment. I have a sneaky feeling that the draft might play a role for this guy, but as time and experience have taught us, you never know which way a guy goes until after the dust settles. I also understand he’s a football player, which worked out just fine for Texas HS shortstop Matt Lipka in 2010.
