Clawson is a 6-foot-1, 184-pound catcher out of Dana Hills High School in Dana Point, California.

Clawson's plate power has not gone unnoticed. He hit 5 home runs in his Senior season. He also has been touted as one of the best defensive catchers in the country.

David has been a member of the USA National Team Development Program for under-17s in 2014.

With his MLB selection, Clawson has a decision to make. Will he choose to attend BYU or accept his professional contract with the Yankees.
