Scouting Report

1/4/18- Florida recruit is long and athletic with a projectable build. Green put on a show during bp driving the ball deep in cold temperatures. With an upright stance he creates plenty of leverage in his swing. He stays extremely balanced throughout the swing and has plus power to anywhere in the park. Also an above average runner. All around may have the best hit/power combo in the 2019 class.

10/15/17- Florida recruit. One of the top 2019s, he shows why with what he can do with the bat. Turns the barrel well and connects the lower and upper half well. Long levers, he stays short and has plus power potential. Solid defender, but the bat should play with enough power if he needs to go to a corner.

9/23/15- Committed to University of Florida

1/17/15 Florida Preseason ID Showcase - Tall loose lean very young projectable body. Has a very good hitting approach with good rhythm and timing. Loose bat with quickness in hands. Very good extension through the ball. Good hand eye with good hitters hands. Some loft in swing with good leverage. Can drive ball for a young kid. Surprising power for his age. Exit bat speed was 80 mph. Athletic actions with softness in hands at 1B. Loose easy throwing arm. Threw 71 mph across the infield. Ran a 7.7 60 yard dash. On the mound, he had a loose easy working arm with a ¾ slot. Very projectable. FB was 72-74 mph with a lot of life. CV was a ¾ breaker at 59-60 mph. Threw a lot of strikes. Overall game will improve with physical maturity. Hard to believe this kid is only in Middle School. He is a baseball player with a lot of upside. Will be fun to watch.
