Smooth, athletic swing with balance throughout and flashed the strength with 2 homers. 

5 hits, 2 HRs, 1 2B

June 2018 -  Lots to dream on with the frame. Long, lanky, and athletic with graceful movements like a basketball player. His speed was his best attribute over the course of the weekend and he stole several bags while running the bases at a high level. The actions at shortstop look natural and twitchy, and he has a strong arm (was up to 90 on the bump in August), although hands will need to improve for him to be an elite defender. Speed will definitely give him a chance to play the outfield, especially with how athletic and long his strides are. At the plate, he has a deeper load down and back before working flat through the zone with a slight scoop because he is still developing strength. Short to the ball with quick hands but also very quick out of the zone. Very intriguing because of the athleticism.

3/20/18 - Alabama commit has a long, lean and projectable 6-foot-3 180-pound frame. He shows fluid actions in the field and at the plate. Body type and actions are similar to a young Adam Jones. Though he has not grown into that type of power he offers plenty of projection. It is unclear if shortstop will be his final destination, but he has plenty of arm strength and actions to hold down the spot for now.
