4/18/17 SPRING SCOUT BLOG: 6-foot-2, 185 pounds, projectable athletic build. Currently ranked No. 6 in Indiana's 2018 class, the Louisville commit shows smooth, athletic actions in the field.  Made two big time plays in last night's game; one on a slow chopper behind the pitchers mound and another deep in the hole, both for outs.  Transfer is quick and clean with a quick release. Strong arm across the diamond.  Great defensive instincts, advanced feel for the SS position.  Offensively went 3-3 with a double and  2RBI.  Offensively, has a swagger like approach hitting from an athletic setup, slightly open, high back elbow.  Leg kick timing trigger, load is smooth, hands are quick through the zone. Showed good use of his lower half with balance.  Barrels up the baseball with gap type power.
