USC-Upstate commit; ranked No. 48 in the Illinois’ 2021 class. One of the top first baseman’s in the state. 6-foot-2, 205-pound, physical, wide-shouldered, left-handed hitter. Hit in the four-hole and played first base. Presence and confidence in the box. Has an above-average approach. Stays within himself, uses the whole field and understands the zone. Loose, strong hands, present bat speed and flashes pull-side power. Finished 2-for-4 with two singles; one over the shortstops head and the other a hard-hit ground ball right back up the middle. Defensively, made multiple impressive plays at first base. Soft hands, ability to handle balls in the dirt with ease. Feel around the bag and has a well-above average arm that showed carry and life during pre-game infield.
