Oklahoma Commit. 5-foot-10, 165 pounds. This elite athlete has been one of the biggest helium guys in the entire 2023 draft process since it began last summer post draft. The reasons are quite obvious, and it starts with his top of the scale speed. Not only did his tools increase at a rapid rate, but his swing from both sides of the plate has become very consistent. It’s one of the most balanced, simplified forward moves in the class, and this simplicity will be much needed when facing the high quality arms he’ll see for the rest of his career. Battling against top arms in the country at East Coast Pro and some big PBR events have undoubtedly shown him what he needs to do to be successful at the plate, and he’s made good adjustments at a rapid pace. His quiet rhythm in the hands, minimal stride, efficient load, and direct swing path allow him to produce contact at a high rate. In addition to his rare hand-eye coordination, his hip pace is perfect and doesn’t move far from his center of balance. These are two of the biggest keys for timing up good velocity on a consistent basis. Timing is everything in baseball, but more specifically timing the hips with a pitcher’s release point is key. Walk’s swing also develops in perfect sequence, and his compact actions allow his head to stay still better than almost any prospect in the class. As most of my AB’s on him have come as a LHH, it was great to see him hit from the right side in Week 10. The #1 sign you look for in a switch hitter is that their swings look similar from both sides. This is certainly the case with J-Walk, and he showed off his improved strength hitting a dead center HR on a ball that he didn’t even catch perfectly out front (see comments on tweet below for context). One of his most impressive skills that I haven’t seen being talked about is reaction time. It allows him to get great jumps on the basepaths, adjust to different pitches in any location, and make lightning quick reads in both CF and 2B. When you look at the effortless speed, innate instincts, and slick glove, it’s easy to see him being one of the best defenders in college/pro baseball at two premium positions. I think he will save more runs in CF where his speed can be fully unleashed. Overall, this is a special player who can impact the game every single day with his blazing speed, defense, and contact oriented approach. Stay tuned as we track him leading up to the draft, with draft projections and scouting reports to come

5-foot-10 160-pounds. Oklahoma commit. Walk showed well at the Preseason All-State in January posting a 6.81 60 yard dash, and proved to be on of the strongest outfielders at the event. In his senior season opener he led the Hoyas at the leadoff spot. He brought around the first run of the game on a hard line drive to right field that appeared to be a SAC fly, but ended up getting down. He then added a leadoff triple down the line in the 7th to give the Hoyas an insurance run. The swing is clean from the left side, standing tall with a short stride and powerful finish.
