Scouting Report

10/12/18 - Mississippi commit. 6-foot-2, 185-pound right-handed infielder is perhaps the player with the least fanfare and the highest upside. He has a projectable frame and is extremely athletic. He is a plus runner, and the athleticism is functional both defensively and offensively.. Defensively, he shows a great first step and easy strides which creates above average range. He has an above average arm and overall the potential to stick at short as an above average to near plus defender. Offensively, the swing is simple, level and compact with present bat speed. He shows an advanced approach and present gap-to-gap power with some leverage and power potential. Overall, he is an elite athlete with multiple present above average tools and an extremely high ceiling. 

04/12/18- Ole Miss recruit. The shortstop is athletic and rangy. He is light on his feet, works with rhythm and present above average athleticism. Offensively, he has strength in the lower half. There is some steepness in the pat at times, but shows bat-to-ball skills and above average bat speed. There is gap-to-gap power with more potential with athletic/strength combo. High ceiling and high 2019 follow.

12/16/17- Ole Miss recruit. Running the days best 60 a 6.52 on a quality turf tack, he continued to show off his twitchy, functional athleticism throughout the day. Defensively, there is some stiffness in the actions at short, but he has well above average range and you can see the athleticism. Offensively, he hits from an upright stance with a small leg kick trigger. There is some steepness in the path at times, but the hands work and there is present bat speed. As he continues to get stronger and use the lower half, there is gap-to-gap power potential.
