03/10/18- USF recruit. Stock strength, with broad shoulders. Shows solid average defensive tools. Offensively, there is strength and bat speed. Was 1-5 with a double and 3 RBIs.
1/27/18- South Florida recruit. The strong, stocky 6-foot 210 pound catcher is built for the position. Defensively, he presents a good target and shows potential as an above average receiver and all around defender. The hands work and that is evident in the quick transfer to release, with pop times ranging from 2.08-2.17. Offensively, he really gets into the lower half early. Staying on the back side, when he works through the ball it jumps off of the bat from gap-to-gap. Could clear the back side a bit more,  but there is a lot of strength and quality utilization of the lower half. He has strong wrists and a simple, compact swing and approach that are going to play at the next level. 
07/17/17- Committed to the University of South Florida.

05/28/17 - Uncommitted. Currently stands at 6-foot, 218 pounds with a strong, solid frame. Balanced approach at the plate with strength in his swing when he squares it up. Makes hard contact. Showed the ability to use all of the field when he took a pitch the other way for a bases clearing double during the game. 

3/2/16- 6-foot-1, 210-pounder with a big, strong, blocky, catchers body. Stronger lower half and moves well behind the plate for his size. Throws down to 2B were on line and accurate, quick release. Blocked most of any pitches in the dirt. At the plate, he showed some loft, extension, and a direct path to the ball with some power. Barrels it and makes hard contact. Crushed a HR over the LF wall during the game and had a couple of deep fly outs in his other at bats.
9/26/15- Strong, stalky, and thick frame. Open stance at the plate with high hands . Gets a small separation and hand trigger for his load. Average bat speed with a nice swing plane.The ball jumps off his bat. 2.15 pop time.
