Unsigned senior, currently ranked No. 278 in the Illinois’ 2021 class. 5-foot-10, 170-pound, well-proportioned, right-handed hitting catcher. Hit in the two-hole for Hinsdale Central. Finished 2-for-4 with a double, and a run scored. Athletic, balanced setup in the box; confident look and aggressive to pitches in the zone. Aggressive swing, occasionally gets long but flashes bat strength and natural lift in swing. Doubles hard to left field in his final at-bat of the day. Defensively, natural catcher actions behind the plate, sure-hands, active blocker and arm played accurately. Follow unsigned senior catcher.
