Uncommitted Spotlight - '22 Aiden Jackson (Bellarmine Prep)


Dan Jurik
Scouting Director - Pacific Northwest

Uncommitted '22 SS Aiden Jackson (Bellarmine Prep) capped off our summer events with a strong showing at our Summer Finale back in August. 

Jackson first attended a workout back in the summer of 2019 when we first started our coverage in Washington. Since then he's continued to improve his measurables across the board while adding more size and strength. On our in-game looks, he's shown a blue collar approach and a knack for making the fundamental play.

Scouting Report

8/18/21

Jackson has always sported a lean, compact frame with proportional size in his upper & lower half. There’s noticeably more mass and strength there now as he stands 5-foot-11, 180 pounds. Showed off the best speed we’ve seen from him with a 6.88 in the 60. Offensively, starts with lower half slightly open and subtle bend in his lower half. Moves weight onto backside with a slow, steady shift then takes a short forward stride into landing. Hands stay loose and relaxed as front foot gets down. Staying tall while he initiates swing. Continues to keep barrel inside of the ball and looks to drive everything up the middle & to the big parts of the field. Stays tall with a consistent 2-handed finish and keeps head down thru contact. Defensively, handles the INF with sound footwork and repeatable actions. Starts slightly narrow in his pre-pitch approach and then lands in a wider, more athletic base at contact. Stays low and lets ball travel into his stance. Funnels in quickly to chest and keeps ball high & tight while readjusting feet towards target. Tight, compact arm action from ¾ slot but also showed ability to lower his release when ranging up the middle. Steady, confident defender who avoids rushing or trying to do too much.

7/22/20
On the bump, Jackson worked exclusively out of the stretch with a simplified operation. Comes set with hands at waist height then brings everything up in rhythm with his high leg lift. Breaks hands at chest height as he gets into forward stride down the mound. Has some bend on rear leg but keeps shoulders level. Hips open up and give him clean direction towards target. Arm action gets extended then shortens up into ¾ release point. Throws with late intent and finishes with aggressive hand speed out front. Balanced posture at finish with eyes on target throughout.

6/17/20
5-foot-10, 175-pound sturdy frame. Jackson continues to show development in all areas of his game across the looks we've had. During BP recorded an improved exit velocity of 88 mph. Hits from a balanced stance with a smooth, controlled load. Takes a short stride into landing. Barrel stays inside of the ball with a simple, level swing plane and a flat, line drive type finish. Lets the ball travel and keeps an 'up the middle' type of approach. Defensively, showed consistent feet and a clean exchange in the INF. Reliable hands when funneling ball in with a repeatable exchange. Used a ¾ slot and a short arm action while showing consistent accuracy to the bag. Set a new high with 80 mph arm strength across the diamond. Also ran a 7.05 in the 60 to show that the added strength isn't limiting his overall athleticism.
