His coach at Vanderbilt, Tim Corbin has this to say about Carter Young:

“It wasn’t a surprise that Carter inserted himself very quickly into our program. His defensive skills are advanced for a young player and very impactful at the shortstop position. He has continued to grow as an offensive player with strength and skill development. Carter has a very even disposition for the game that plays very well for him and our team. I am most excited about his growth and maturity academically over the last semester.”

Last year he hit .262 with 16 home runs and 52 RBI’s. He is considered ready to jump to the next level. Young will likely be the second shortstop taken off the board.  Check out our other prospect profiles:
