Oregon recruit, currently ranked No. 237 nationally in the 2020 class. Athletic 6-foot-2, 175-pound right-handed hitting outfielder with proportional strength. Quick-twitch tendencies, moves with fluidity on the bases and in center field. Offensively, generates bat speed with his hands, looks to get his swing off but doesn’t chase out of the zone. Calm, relaxed approach, strong at contact, ball jumps off the barrel. Doesn’t get cheated in the box.

Outfielder Colby Shade of Fort Collins comes in at No. 3 in the 2020 updated rankings. Shade, who recently de-committed from Virginia, was PBR All-Colorado last spring. The top outfield prospect in Colorado, Shade has his best year to date last spring hitting .533 with 7 doubles, 5 triples, while stealing 27 bases without getting caught. The 6-foot-2, 170-pound right hand hitting outfielder ran a 6.60 60 at the 2018 Colorado Top Prospect Games, and also showcased a strong arm from the outfield at 86 mph.  Simple, balanced set up at the plate.  Slow load to the back side and weight fires through the zone.  Exit velocity was 93 mph from a tee.  Hit several balls hard to the right center gap during the live BP round. In the field he is fundamentally sound and shows excellent anticipation. Still can't forget the play he made in the District Playoffs last spring with 1 out and the winning run at 3rd in the bottom of the 7th inning against Douglas County that preserved the tie in a game that Fort Collins would eventually win in extra innings.

6-foot-1, 165-pound right hand hitting OF. Fast-twitched player. High hips stood out, looks like there is a lot more room to grow. Probably will end up 6-foot-4, 190 pounds.  Very athletic. Lower half is solid through the zone. Pull-side power right now. Gets good extension through the ball and after. Exit velocity was 85 mph. In the field he glides to the ball, he is aggressive fielding through the ball and delivers an on target throw. Very athletic and uses his speed to close the gap on balls. Arm is accurate to the bag.  Arm velocity was 85 MPH.

High-waisted athlete who looked like a football player slot receiver or free safety. Strong, uphill path. Leg kick and down and back hand load sync up very nicely as he gets into a strong hitting position. Short to the ball with quicker hands, but is also pretty quick out of the zone with a single-handed finish. Very good athlete to follow.
