Nevada commit; Has a presence about him, seemingly knowing he is going to knock the ball around and that is what he’s there to do. His 6-foot-2, 205-pound frame makes for a physical presence though can develop more firmness in the coming years.

60 yd: Out of the start, aggressive with each step if not quite fleet of foot. Staying in a straight line, all motions look fluid and crossing the line at 100%.

1B Def: The big body first baseman showed off his athleticism with quick turns, varied arm angles, and good footwork.  Seeing hops off the bat once it was hit, grabbed balls on the right hop, quick transfers to an infield velo of 78 mph. Accuracy also was present.

Hitting: With a solid wide stance for balance, and backward toe taps gets his hands in an already solid position to hit. Keeping his head and eyes motionless with each pitch, it's clear that tracks pitches well. With the ability to drive the ball to all fields, he consistently showed his strength. An exit velo of 98.18 mph, he kept the barrel through the zone after contact.

Summary: Showed some real, physically raw talent, particularly with the bat. From hitting for power to solid athleticism at first base, as he builds up more muscle, these skills will become more pronounced.

vs St. Ignatius Prep - Nevada commit; Full body though has improved shape and proportions from last time seeing him; no tangible results to show but had four quality at-bats in five plate appearances, physical hitter (heavy hands) with all field power and willingess to use the whole field, quiet in the box, can execute an approach, middle of order producer who also showed sound defensive talents and an arm that plays well for the plays needed at 1B.

NorCal Preseason All-State: 8.10 60yd, 76 INF, 92 EV

6-2, 200 has done a good job of cleaning up the wide shouldered frame and adding strength to it; moving better after major knee issue from football two seasons ago. Balanced stance, slightly opened with hands starting at back shoulder and relaxed elbows; loads into back foot having hands lift a bit before toe-tap stride showing good spacing and launch position. Ability to whip barrel upwards through the zone with hips starting the swing and using the lower half well to drive through contact; drove balls into the middle of the field and carried gaps well (92 EV). Used the bag well at first adjusting his feet to throws and staying below the baseball with the glove when picking balls out of the dirt; flashes the ability to get off the bag to make plays with high elbow throws to the bags (76 INF). Swing has the power needed for position and still time to continue to shape frame for more projection.


5/27/19

NCA UCID - Large, wide and thick frame with high waist and some strength. Coming back from a major knee/leg injury from Football season; 9.10 60 yd. Slightly open stance with bend in knees keeping high hands and high back elbow. Simple, balanced swing allowing barrel to work upwards through the zone; quick bat that is strong and able to really drive the ball deep into the gaps. Future pop as he drives the backside and creates easy leverage (90 EV); ball jumps off his bat when on time. Wide, high hips glove shows smaller range; puts out effort getting off the bag and moving to get ball at 1st. Fair glove with fair bag presence; compact, higher release arm (71 MPH). Will need to improve athleticism as bat can really get to ball.
