One of the more talented players in attendance, Morales displayed a natural ability in between the white lines. Listed at 5-foot-10, 180 pounds, he has a filled out, muscular build and possesses the athleticism to move around the middle infield well. He moves in sync with the legs and hands while getting momentum through the ball utilizing his body in the throw. He displays the arm talent to make a throw from anywhere on the infield, up to 87 mph, while also using different slots with accuracy. Morales impressed at the plate with advanced movements and a mature approach. Utilizing a leg kick to activate the backside and increase separation, Morales has fast enough hands to sit and let the ball get deep. He has a rhythmic load and keeps the head still as the front foot lands softly, then fires the backside producing back spun line drives.

Florida State commit, Super athletic in the infield and has a great first step. Gets a little long with his arm action, but has great carry and accuracy on his throws. Is very smooth and fluid with his hands and fields everything out front with a great exchange, while playing through the ball. Has  bat speed and hits a lot of line drives. Likes to use a leg kick to get his lower half into his swing, whiling staying balanced with his approach. Stays level through the zone with his swing and has good rhythm at the plate.

Tulane commit, Morales was one of the biggest standouts of the weekend. If the Scorpions won the Championship, would've been the likely MVP. He consistently stayed on the barrel with above average bat speed and a compact, level swing. Although impressive offensive, he really shined defensively. He shows an above average feel for the position combined with functional athleticism and above average hands. He showed the ability to make every play needed to be a plus defender at the next level. Overall, he was extremely impressive and on the rise.
