Uncommitted. 6-foot, 180-pounds. Large frame with present strength throughout particularly in the lower half. Perhaps no player has changed his body like Riley has who has dropped 30 pounds since giving up football to focus exclusively on baseball. Listed as a LHP/1B, Riley’s future is likely on the mound where he shows an easy arm action that he’s able to repeat. Uses a slight dip-and-drive delivery with a full arm path through to a high 3/4 arm slot that he repeats consistently. Gains ground down the mound and lands inline consistently while staying balance and using his lower half very well. Working 84-85 with the fastball, Riley was able to command the pitch to specific quadrants in the strike zone changing eye levels from one pitch to the next with the fastball that flashed slight run to the arm side. Buries the curveball for strikes with the pitch never getting above the top of the knee of hitters. Throws his change up with fastball arm speed adding deception to the pitch that dives away from righties as it enters the zone. Riley showed athleticism around the bag at first to go with a 77 mph exit velocity off the tee. While he may be a good two-option in high school, he profiles best on the mound where there’s ample projection remaining.

SoCal Underclass Games - Six-foot, 205-pound, large frame with strength through the lower half and developing in the upper half. Broad shoulders with some strength through arms. Riley is a projectable hitter that profiles for future power gains once physically mature. He's short to the ball with present bat speed flashing a quick barrel through the hitting zone. Shows a middle approach and gets barrel on the ball more often than not. Strength and power really project at the plate. Had a hard hit RBI single to center field in-game showing his ability to stay inside and drive balls. Setup is balanced with a smooth load and a short stride. Shows athleticism when playing first base. Footwork is fluid and glovework is above average. Plays through short hops with the glove. Made several "picks" both during the workout and game. As a pitcher Riley shows a compact arm from a ¾ slot. Arm is easy and loose. Falls off to third base side. Works ball downhill.
