Samford commit. 6-foot-1, 185-pound right-handed hitting third baseman, athletic frame with strength throughout, will add more as he continues to mature. Has simple pre-pitch rhythm with a toe-tap stride and load of the hands and weight back, good timing. Barrel works mostly level through the zone with some leverage, drives the ball with a strong lower half. In the opening game against Georgia commit Patrick Holloman (Ola), turned on a pitch and sent it sailing over the left field fence for a solo HR. Generated hard pull-side contact all weekend long.

Staton is a very interesting shortstop/third base prospect who poses a strong build at 6-foot-1, 185 pounds. Staton moves well to his left and shows the ability to come and get the baseball, on the move. He has all the measurables as well, posting a 6.81 mark in the 60-yard dash, combined with an 89 mph top velocity across the infield. He has plenty of arm and his feet work well in the dirt. While Staton can get it done on the defensive side of the ball, he has excelled at the plate over the last year, and it was easy to see why. He sets up with hands loaded slightly above his shoulder and gets maximum leverage to put his size and strength to work. He showed well with the ability to stay on pitches on the outer half and drive the baseball. He produces consistent hard contact with feel for the bathead, and has enough thump in his bat to do some damage, as he produced and exit velocity of 92 mph off the barrel. Staton profiles well at the next level and has enough versatility to be used in a variety of capacities early in his career, giving him much value to a team at the next level.
