Polk may hover just below 5-foot-10 and 150-pounds, but he plays like he's 6-foot-4, 215-pounds. The UCLA recruit gets the most out of his smaller frame, and utilizes his quick hands and strong wrists to drive the ball with some sneaky gap power. Setting up crouched, Polks hands separate with a segmented load back along with a short stride before working noticeably uphill through the zone. He went 2-for-3 in the game that I watched with a double, and his only out was a screaming line drive to centerfield. His energy and ability to consistently find the barrel should make him a fun player to watch progress over the next few years.

UCLA commit. 5-foot-10, 155 pound frame, wiry strength that projects to easily handle the addition of mass in the future. One of the fastest players in his class, and possibly any class, in the state. Offensively, utilizes a neutral stance with hands at the shoulder, shifts weight back to trigger swing before releasing an exaggerated leg kick as a timing mechanism, hands remain quite during the process. Showed elite level speed, clocked at 3.00 from first to second on a bunt after a jab step against a left-handed pitcher, immediately followed that with a steal of third base which was clocked at 2.82. Defensively, Polk shows good reads on the ball and uses his speed to track balls down. Arm strength is average or slightly below at present time.
