Mathisen's sound approach at the plate and strong arm highlight a solid package of skills for a prep catcher. He's an accurate thrower as well and has quick hands that help him generate bat speed. Mathisen will head to Austin to play for the Longhorns if he doesn't sign a pro deal this coming summer. He projects as a potential second round as a high-water mark as the 2012 schedule begins.

Quote from recruiting coordinator and associate head coach Tommy Harmon: Wyatt is a young man who has played and caught in the summer, and at his high school team in Calallan he has played at third and short. He is primarily a catcher, but his athleticism and his tools in baseball allow him to be a valuable player in the infield if needed. It is very unusual for someone to be very adept at playing short and catcher but he is. He has extra power from the right side, he has a strong throwing arm. He is a guy that we think has a very good future as a catcher.
