Friend is following in the footsteps of former teammate, Michael Carico. He's a sneaky athlete with some speed and had to split time with Carico behind the plate but he threw out 38% of runners and looks the part of a big league catcher. He might have the best batter's eye in the country and chased just 9% of pitches in back-to-back seasons. He walked 20% of the time as a sophomore, which is the best part of his game. Despite the plus plus plate discipline, the improvements with his power are what have him in the top-5 round discussion now. He hit 11 jacks and then 4 in the summer. His hit tool is a 45-grade and while he does strike out too much for comfort, part of that is him taking a ton of borderline pitches in a small conference where zones are bigger. His bat-to-balls are fine and not of concern. He's not a dynamic talent with every tool, but he's productive and could end up being a low-end regular in the future.
