Easley was one of the better prep catchers coming out of high school, but he made it pretty clear that he intended to honor his commitment to Mississippi State. Always known for his bat more than his glove, Easley has played both third base and catcher for the Bulldogs. Behind the plate he has trouble blocking balls in the dirt, and while he has an average arm with good accuracy, opposing baserunners typically have had pretty good success swiping bags when he's behind the dish. He has enough athleticism to play third base, and possibly even second, which would allow him to focus on his bat, which is his best attribute. His bat is made for contact and a high average, and he is a good situational hitter. He is more of a doubles hitter than a home run hitter, but there is enough pop in his bat to reach double-digit home run totals. He receives high marks for his character and leadership skills, which may help him stay behind the plate.
