Gulf Coast State commit threw 5 scoreless innings in the championship game. Fastball was 83-85 most the game. Good, sharp CB that sat around 70. He had enough control to flip over for strikes when he needed to as well as get it in the dirt for an out pitch. He did a good job of starting at the bottom of the zone, and letting it break down. The consistent arm angle kept the hitters guessing. The CH is there as well. He did not throw it much, but when he did it looked great. Good speed differential around 10mph. Threw it right on right and to left handed hitters. All around great competitor on the mound. If he can command the FB like he did this weekend in the Panhandle next year he will be very successful. 


Quite simply, the guy is just a big time defender behind the plate with elite catch and throw skills. Does a nice job of extending the plate both side for pitchers and is very natural blocking balls in the dirt with a quick recovery. No doubt whatsoever with the throw to 2B ad he threw nothing above a 1.95 to 2B and was as low as 1.75. He has thrown multiple 1.7’s at our events. The bat has come on and he shows much more pop off of the barrel than a year ago. If you need an elite defensive catcher in the ‘20 class, here is your guy.

1.20.19-  plenty of arm strength from 3B and C.  Plays the game with moxie and confidence, and skills to back that up. Plus defender behind the plate  that continues to impress receiving the ball and pop times to 2B. Range from 1.83- 1.90 at the event. Shows solid glove action at 3B and athletic make up with plenty of arm strength across the diamond. At the plate, starts from a slightly open stance with good separation of the hands and front side with a slight tilted swing plane. Has really improved juice off of the barrel.

10.28.18  Plus defensive actions at 3B with slick glove work and solid glove presentation with advanced feet before and after the ball is in the glove. Big time arm across the diamond as he threw 91 mph across the dirt. Solid work as a secondary position (C is primary

10.28.18 Continued his impressive showing at our events by showing an event best 1.78 pop time (1.78-1.88 range) and every throw was on the bag. Very quick feet and transfer with plenty of arm strength. Does a very good job of receiving pitches and extending the plate, while showing solid skills on balls in the dirt. An elite defensive catcher. Offensively, he has a slow load from an open stance with a leg kick approach and showed a gap to gap approach with slight tilt in the swing. Showed some juice off of the barrel with a 91 mph exit velo off of a tee

10.14.18 an elite level defender behind the plate. Does everything well and is a true catch and throw that has the ability to completely shut down the opposing running game. Was consistently high 1.8- low 1.9 pop times all day (workout and game) and was incredibly accurate. Showcase best 1.88 pop, as well as the best pop time we have seen all year at other events. Does a superb job of extending the plate for pitches and can handle the ball in the dirt with quick recovery with the feet. At the plate, he showed some pull side juice and the ability to work the backside gap with a slow load of the hands. Had a line drive 1B to CF during the game. Shouldn’t stay uncommitted too long

7/25/17 A 5-foot-9, 140-pound frame with room for continued growth. Advanced defender with soft hands, fluid footwork, and clean exchanges. Short arm action into high-3/4 release with accuracy on throws that produced a positional velocity of 73 mph and pop time ranging between 1.99-2.15. Right-handed hitter that hits from athletic setup, smooth load, and short stride. Line-drive type hitter, fluid rhythm, short, level path and bat speed that produced an exit velocity of 75 mph. Also posted a 8.01 60-yard dash.
