Summer Scout - Medium frame with some strength projects well with some future growth. During game 1 showed good actions at 3rd base and some athleticism making a play on the run with a top ball putting the throw on the money. 3rd AB doubled down the LF line showing a quick bat with strength through the zone; ball jumped for an easy stand up double. During game 2 put together three solid AB’s with two walks and a single through the 6-hole. Range in infield is fair probably fitting best at 3B, 2B or possibly Catcher where his agile body and quick feet could work well.

PBR N CA Preseason All-State - Full, medium frame showing strength in core and lower half; high knees runner staying tall as he runs (7.69 60-yd). Open, balanced stance with high hands and slight bend in knee; knee tuck/kick with hands working back and up. Swing works on slight upward path with quick hands that can create leverage; drove balls deep to the pull side gap flashing a strong bat (88 exit velo). Wide base with controlled footwork able to make plays in middle of the field; arm gets to ear quickly with strength in throws showing carry across the diamond (80 MPH). Continues to show why he’s such a highly touted 2021 player providing positional versatility and instincts of a ball player.
