Report: Miami recruit, currently ranked No. 4 in Florida’s 2019 class, No. 6 overall. Strong 6-foot-2, 195-pound body with athleticism and a strong lower half. At the plate he has an advanced approach with a wide base and is relaxed, balanced in the box. With above average bat speed, he has demonstrated the ability to use all of the plate and drive the ball deep into the gaps. Squares it up and the ball jumps off the bat. Behind the plate he has good flexibility in his legs, deadens pitches in the dirt, receives well, and shows good awareness of runners on the base paths. Quick transfer with an easy, plus arm which translates to throws that are on line with carry and accuracy to the bag.
