4/02/24
Big barrels all day long for Paul coming through with a couple loud extra-base hits in a big win for Allatoona. The East Tennessee State commit does a tremendous job of matching plane throughout the zone while incorporating a strong 6-foot-1, 190-pound frame. Gets extended well backed by present bat speed to generate hard-hit batted balls regularly. There’s power to all-fields but the chance for above-average raw pop to the pull-side is there. Good range in either corner outfield spot for Cruz with present arm strength as QB1 for Allatoona with good athleticism as well that also plays at the hot corner.
6/30/23

Uncommitted, 6-foot 1, 190-pounds. Paul is a player who can do it all. He is a solid defender in the infield and the outfield, can swing the stick, has solid speed, and he can get on the mound and pitch. Paul is a two sport athlete playing QB. He is a competitor on the mound and in the box. On the mound, he got his team out of a jam. Fastball sat 84-87, slider was 77-78, and his curveball was 72. At the plate Paul showcases good timing with his hands, and uses all parts of the field smoking balls to the pull side and backside. Hands stay inside the baseball, and he does not let his hands get away from him and hook around the ball on the outer half of the plate. Paul is a fun player to watch who competes to his highest ability each time he touches the field.

Underclass Games - Outfield Analysis 

Positional Profile: OF Toolsy, possesses easy actions at the plate and in the field. Not a lot of effort in anything he does and makes it look easy. Bat to ball will improve as his swing path gets better and overall rhythm in hips progresses.
Body: 6-foot-0, 180-pounds. Athletic high-waisted. Mature upper half
Hit: RHH. Open setup w/ the barrel starting over his head. Quick toe tap brings the knob down almost parrel to back leg producing easy uphill plane with the barrel through contact  Pull side line drive contact w/ short path to the ball
Power: 90.1 max exit velocity, averaged 83 mph. 313’ max distance. pull side power stands out currently and will in the future as he continues to tweak minor things in swing/swing path
Arm: RH. OF - 82 mph. Super easy quick arm circle and H 3/4 arm action.
Defense: Easy fluidity through transfer and build up to the ball. Athleticism stands out in the field and allows him to be more aggressive. Easy glide in the OF
Run: 7.21 runner in the 60.

2/01/22

Paul has one of the highest upsides in the class. An athletic 6-foot, 175-pounds with strength throughout, Paul swings the bat aggressively. He showed power to middle and pull, posting a max exit velocity of 89. As he continues to mature, Paul will be a real power threat. Defensively, he has a short, quick arm, and plenty of strength to strick on the hot corner.
