Scouting Report:
Currently ranked No. 1 in Illinois’ 2019 class, No. 9 overall. Physically advanced 6-foot, 200-pound frame, strong lower half. High-level national prospect. Freshman hits third for one of the top teams in the state, and has already garnered respect as a premier left-handed power bat, regardless of class. That was evident when he was intentionally walked with two-outs and bases empty in the bottom of the seventh inning with Mount Carmel leading by a run to get to the No. 4 hitter. For his age, he is remarkably quiet and relaxed in the box; takes pitches well. Short and quick to the ball, strong through contact. Overall advanced hitter, has shown power to all fields. Known primarily as a catching prospect, but starts at St. Laurence at third base due to a senior catcher in front of him. Defensively, looked like a natural at third base. Solid lateral footwork, plenty of carry across the infield. In game, made a diving play to his right to rob a hit, popped up and fired a strike to first base. Certainly doesn’t comport himself like a freshman on the field.
