Defense:  Defensively read the ball well, sets his feet and keeps his head down with the glove out in front, limited laterally, tools might be best suited for 2B/OF. 
Arm: RH.  INF - 82 mph.  Some arm strength, 82 mph from short to first, uses his upper body to propel his throws, high natural arm slot, some awkwardness, dropped down when needed. 
Hit: RHH. Physical feel at the plate, hands set high and load back, strong leg lift and land to stride, some present strength and hip fluidity.  Powerful swing, long swing path, looks to pull, aggressive at the plate, high finish. Impressed during the competitive simulation with a wood bat base hit and 360 ft flyout. 
Power: 93 mph exit velocity from the tee. 
Run: 7.21 runner in the 60.

Positional Profile: 2B/3B
One of more talented offensive talents among uncommitted 2021s in the area.
Body: 6-foot-0, 200-pounds. Strong and chiseled, physical body throughout.
Defense: Works to get around the ball, hands are soft enough, went to backhand well, can take him an extra step or two to release at times, reads ball well, competent defender.
Arm: RH. INF - 79 mph. Fairly short on backside, somewhat conservative thrower focused on accuracy, dropped down well moving to his left, release is fair, arm profiles at 2B.
Hit: RHH. Balanced feet, very slightly open, feet a bit wider than shoulders, hands held high with barrel waggle, hitterish presence, pronounced knee lift/tuck while creating barrel angle and knob toward catcher.  Strong explosive swing, drives hips, utilizes lower body well, consistent loud barrel contact w/present power, barrel LIVES through contact.
Power: 95 mph exit velocity in cage front toss session.
Run: 7.14 runner in the 60.
