Jacobi Purvis, INF, Voyager Academy, 2025
Athletic build, with advanced feel for the game. Glove played well in all directions, with quickness and above average arm strength. Balanced patient approach in the box, willing to take a walk. Showed zone awareness.  Quick hands and feel for the barrel with ability to drive the ball to the gaps.  Projectable skill set that should continue to develop as the frame matures.
