Vs Serra - Arizona commit. DH only look. One of the Top 2020 players in Northern California (and the State) continued to show off his bat-to-ball skills against top arms in this look. At the plate, stands tall and balanced with high hands and a high back elbow as barrel bounces with some rhythm. Very slight, controlled foot lift being soft on landing as hands work down and into shoulder showing scap load; regularly lands in strong launch position. Above-average bat speed with compact, tight arc keeping hands inside baseball and using his strength and bat speed to hit the ball all over the field. Have seen him be able to hit the ball out of the ballpark, but has a natural knack for finding barrels against any pitcher. Patience at the plate is one of his strongest attributes as he waits for his pitch and rarely misses it; not afraid to hit from behind in the count. Loose easy stride out of the box with understanding of the game and when he needs to turn it up. Very instinctive on the baseball diamond stealing 3rd on double steal where Catcher had to clutch and throw to 2nd forcing a bad throw and starting scoring in 6th inning. Type of teammate and player you want on your team as he is able to mix high-level baseball skills with high-level knowledge of the game showing a very high ceiling.

8/10-8/12/18 - Arizona commit - Medium frame with lean strength in legs and chest; high, tight waist and strength through core and lower half showing off loose hips as he runs and makes plays. Simple set up with balanced stance and higher hands that work back under control during the load; very explosive hands showing tight turns on the ball and above average bat-to-ball skills. Regularly barreled balls all weekend with patient approach at the plate showing advanced knowledge of the strike zone; 3BB's and 4 hits in weekend. Showed ability to spray ball to all parts of the field during batting practice including showing some pull-side pop that can continue to develop as he matures. Average runner with ability to turn up speed when needed; 4.3, 4.5 home-to-first showing the ability to let loose hips open up when trying to get to next base. Instinctual runner on the field, with plus ability to read balls in dirt taking bases as well; ability to go 1st-3rd and score from 1st when available. Defensively showed off average range from three infield spots with ability to make plays on the move and get feet into position for turns and accurate throws. Shows an average arm from a lower slot that has flashes of more when he recognizes the need to get rid of it; strong internal clock at all three positions. Another strong performance from a high-quality player that seems to hardly ever has a bad day at the ballpark. A high follow for 2020 class in Northern California.

6/1/18-6/3/18 @ BAWS 2018 - Strong athletic body type with 5-foot-11 185-pound frame. One of top players in Northern California in the 2020 class. Slight crouch with low hands and balanced stance. Small load before very quick bat with line drive approach showing carry into gaps; ability to control barrel and spray ball to all parts of the field for easy extra bases. Very strong hands with loose wrists; sneaky pop. Above average arm with easy flick of the wrist throws; athletic in field with easy range to both sides. Times where arm can get moving early and cause errant throws. Fluid runner with longer stride and consistent hard runner; consistently taking extra bags as needed; 4.5 Home-1st. Leader on field with consistent hard play and intuitive knowledge of the game.

3/31/18 - Uncommitted. 5-foot-11, 185-pound frame; lean, athletic frame with wide shoulders possessing current strength through core and legs. Uber-athlete with makings of being a star in middle of diamond. 1-1, 2B, BB. Balanced, compact stance with slightly open front foot; hands stay in back pocket with load. Slight tuck of front shoulder while keeping hands in position to fire and coiling into back hip. Very quick hands get excellent extension before turning barrel through contact and hitting over stiff front leg. Ability to drive ball gap to gap currently with more power to come. Fluid, easy runner shows excellent body awareness and control with ability to get to 2nd gear quickly and easily. Defensively has the ability to excel at multiple positions. Took INF/OF at both CF and SS while staying in CF for game. In CF, reacts quickly to ball with ability to snare low line drives or range into either gap. At SS, showed plus actions with excellent ability to control body and get into position quickly. Loved his ability to move his feet and beat ball to spot as well as moving on the run. Arm is compact and quick with ability to get more on throws as needed. Actions in field allow him to not have to maximize arm on every throw. Getting lots of D1 interest currently. Very bright future with potential to be impact player.
