An elite athlete, Cupp has an advanced defensive skill set. He is instinctive and quick with his footwork, and has some of the smoothest glove work and hands that you will ever see. At 6-foot-1, 170-pounds and he has a ton of upside. His barely begun to fill out. As it does, look for the bat to really take off.

Scouting Report

2/22/20

Mississippi State commit. 6-foot-1, 170-pound right-handed hitting middle infielder, athletic, projectable build, continues to grow and fill out his lanky frame. This spring, through multiple views, Cupp has taken a primarily line drive, pull approach, hammering the baseball through the left side of the infield and into left field. A top of the order bat, he is always competitive at the plate and routinely takes quality at-bats. Defensively, as advanced as they come, superior range to both sides, steals hits, arm works athletically and is strong enough to make throws across the infield of his back foot and in the hole. Hopped on the mound for a brief relief appearance, arm worked short and loose from a ¾ to low ¾ slot. Fastball sat 83-85 with armside life.

5/06/19

6-foot-1, 165-pound frame, long, lean build, high-waisted athlete with plenty of room for physical development. Looks to be a high-level national prospect, one that has advanced present abilities and high-ceiling upside. Possesses loose, fluid hands, natural instincts; makes the game look easy yet plays hard. Advanced defender; soft, easy hands, plays extremely well on the move; fields the ball with natural rhythm and gets it out front. Sure-handed. Present arm strength and accurate with the ability to throw from multiple angles. Offensively, right-handed hitter and bats leadoff. Calm, quiet and relaxed in the box. Tracks pitches well, seldom chases; advanced strike zone awareness. Advanced rhythm in load, seemingly on time with everything. Swing is loose and low-maintenance; generates above-average bat speed. Line-drive approach, middle-out; high-level hand-eye athlete. Seemingly on-base all tournament long, either by hit or walk; swiped second and scored, repeat and rinse. Long, fluid strider, will grow into his foot speed. … On the mound, came in relief and threw well. Fastball ranged 81-83 mph, mostly straight. Changeup is a solid offering, 74-76, throws it aggressively and has arm-side fade. Arm works free and easily, longer draw in the back, athletic out front. Overall, Cupp looks to be a premium national-caliber athlete who should be highly coveted in the coming years.
