Scouting Report



Class of 2021 Tennessee recruit. Athletic bodied at 6-foot-3, 180 pounds. Quick arm from ¾ slot. Some down plane. Throws with effort. Late hop on his heater, but lacked command on this look early in the game. Settled in after first inning. Up to 91, working mostly 88-89. Good shape and feel to spin on an 83-84 mph breaking pitch, spinning up to 2500 rpm. Also interesting from the left side of the plate. Quick bat with pull side power. Athleticism allows him to play multiple positions.
