Committed to Missouri out of State JC of Florida. 

3/14/16- Florida International commit who stands at 6-foot-1, 195 pounds with a strong, athletic, and loose body, It looks like he is in better shape than he was in the fall. Smooth actions all over the field with the hands and arm strength to stay at shortstop. He showed off his range well and made an outstanding diving catch in shallow left field. At the plate he has an upright stance with good rhythm and he gets a separation and hand trigger for his load. He has a nice swing plane with some loft that allows him to drive the ball deep into the gaps on a consistent basis.
7/1/15 - Grows on me the more I see him. Athletic actions across the board, strong hands at plate. Made consistent hard contact (2B, 2 singles), moves well in the field. Easy bat speed at plate, sneaky pop. Probably will continue to get stronger and acquire more power in the future.
6/19/15 - Florida International commit. 6-foot-1, 180 pound short stop with a lean loose projectable body. Good actions with solid hands and a fringy arm. Average type range. Enough arm to stay at short stop. Good swing with a balanced approach. Has quickness in the hands with a good plane. Below average power. Bat will improve with added strength. Ran a 6.95 60.
2/10/15 - FIU commit. 6-foot-1,175 pound short stop with a very athletic, lean, and projectable body with quick-twitch actions all over the field. In the infield, he has quick, light feet and attacks balls hit his way. He can also cover a lot of ground and has a short, quick throwing action that is definitely a playable arm from SS. He has soft hands and is pretty smooth, especially turning double plays. At the plate, his hands start off pretty far back but he gets a nice load that puts himself into a good launch position. He has quick hands and stays inside the ball well. Sometimes he lets balls on the inner half get too deep instead of catching it out front. He will add strength and weight easily. Against Brandon he made some athletic plays in the field and was 0-3 at the plate.
