Physical: Long and projectable 6-foot-5, 215-pound frame with an incredibly high ceiling while showing athleticism / advanced strength throughout the movements. 7.18 runner in the 60-yard dash. 

Offensively: RHH. Wide, balanced stance with circular rhythm in the hands above the shoulder in the setup. Utilized a shoulder turn slightly inward coupled with a lift-and-replace stride to initiate a loud, slightly uphill barrel path into the hitting zone. Above average feel at the dish and kept the body behind the baseball consistently, let the hands and long levers do damage at the front of the plate. Was able to keep the bat head short inside the baseball when pitched in and ambushed pitches out over the plate where he did the most damage. Showcased a primarily pull-side approach during batting practice spraying balls all over the left side from LCF to LF line featuring natural backspin on the ball flight. Recorded a peak bat-exit velocity of 104 mph per Trackman Baseball with a couple absolute missiles hit during his round / up to a 390 foot maximum batted ball distance and 78.5 mph top bat speed according to Blast Motion. High level middle of the order hitter who knows how to situationally hit / results came in game action as well. 

Defensively: The primary first baseman demonstrated a solid feel around the bag with a medium center of gravity on the approach off of the left side of his body, soft glove hand that played loosely out in front with a feel for playing through the ball or giving on it. Accurate, high ¾ slot across the diamond with length in the arm swing. INF - 79 mph
