Scouting Report

"5-foot-11, 180-pound shortstop made a strong debut at the Preseason East TN Showcase this January to break into the rankings. Impressive round of batting practice, spraying line drives to all fields with good barrel feel. Short, simple load and generates good bat speed. Defensively, solid hands with athletic feet and good arm strength. Table setter top of the order bat who can play both middle infield positions." -Colton Provey
