State: 26

Ranked No. 21 in Illinois’ class of 2016, No. 84 overall.  5-foot-9, 150-pound listed height and weight with room for projection.  Looked to have grown a little bit.  The following scouting report is from an April Catholic League contest vs. Brother Rice: Fluid actions and short quick arm, very similar to Michigan-commit Ako Thomas.  Solid double play combination for Coach Hurry and the Caravan in the upcoming years.  Grounded out in two at bats to third, reaching base both times on errors.  Stole second base, ran 4.36 to first on second ground ball.  Looked mostly to pull against below average velocity.  Has ran 4.26 to first as well.  Hits from a tall, open, narrow stance with quick hands and bat whip through the zone.

Top-level athlete is younger brother of Jerry, a 2013 grad who played his freshman year of college at Oregon and is currently undecided on where he will play his college baseball in 2015.

 The Prep Baseball Report Future Games is a one-of-a-kind event featuring the top 2016 prospects from across our 10 state coverage area. This year taking place at Grand Park in Westfield, IN from July 31-August 2, hundreds of scouts from across the country will fill the stands to watch some of the top uncommitted 2016 prospects across our coverage area.

Last year’s Illinois Class of 2015 Future Games Team has already seen thirteen Division 1 commitments from that roster. Over the next several weeks we will begin to unveil prospects who have been selected to participate in this year's event with a brief history and bio of the player and what we can expect from him at the PBR Future Games.
