I really like Dillon Haupt, a Catcher/Designated Hitter for the University of San Diego. He is an exceptional young man with a strong work ethic and impressive intangibles. A pleasant person to be around, he is a social connector who gets along well with a variety of clubhouse personalities. When he makes contact, he hits to all fields and adds value with his ability to get on base. I like his swing and he has strong hands. At 6-foot-5, he has prototypical size and long levers. Even though he is a senior, he is 21 years old. Here are my notes on him prior to the summer of 2012:

While at San Diego Mesa College, Dillon was the 2011 Pacific Coast Conference MVP and signed a National Letter of Intent to play for the Toreros. Finished his 2nd year at San Diego Mesa College with a .319 average and led his conference in home runs, RBIs, and slugging percentage. A solid receiver behind the plate, he threw out 14 runners as a sophomore and is a 2009 graduate of Mira Mesa High School. Played basketball and football before devoting himself to baseball and honing his catching craft. Dillon was honored as the West Coast Conference Player of the Month in March of 2012 after hitting .353 for the Toreros. He is the son of Saundra and Steve Haupt.
