vs Whitney HS - Uncommitted; started at 3B and hit in the 4-spot in the order, big boned body with full frame, RBI type offensive player and showed it in first two at bats with simple and unselfish approaches, smashed hard single through 6-hole in first AB then in a two strike count flicked/punched a ball to the 2nd baseman with a runner at 3rd to score the runner, flashed the loft type power in third AB and strength showed in 4th AB as he bounded a ball past the 3rd baseman, can develop a bit more consistency in regard to balance and barrel control but as a slugger with plus power potential he does have some feel for the hit tool. Defensively profiles at 1B or C at present.
