4/25/13 - Athletically built 6-foot-1, 163-pound freshman. Already making impact on varsity; hits in 7 hole; shows athletic arm from outfield; moves well and confidently. Coach said he’s a natural infielder, but picked position up without hitch this season. High-follow prospect in future.

10-3-2018:�Strong, athletic build at six-foot-one, 195 pounds Garella led the Billikens in batting average last spring at .352. Tended to bury his hands and get pushy at the plate for more bat strength than bat speed. Used all fields with lineouts to both RF and SS. Struck out twice, once on a fastball, the other on a back foot slider. Average runner underway with near average arm from right outfield. Overall, a well-rounded balance of tools with athleticism. Garella should attract interest from pro scouts this spring. (Seifert)
