North Central commit. Currently ranked No. 164 in the state. 5-foot-17, 175-pound frame with room to add on strength. Hit out of the leadoff spot and finished the day 3-for-5 with a home run, double, two RBIs and three runs scored. The left-handed hitter remains on-time throughout his at-bats, working with a simple and balanced swing through the zone with a pull-side focus in this look. Patrols the outfield with confidence and a quick first step; soft hands pair with athletic routes and an accurate arm.

4/01/22

5-foot-10, 160-pound, left/left outfielder with sneaky strength in frame. Led off and played center field. Prototypical lead-off hitter. Wide, balanced setup, slight pre-pitch rhythm, quiet overall look. Simple, repeatable, compact swing, controls the barrel and stays short and quick to the ball. Minimal swing and miss, consistent quality at-bats, understands the strike zone, line-drive contact with the ability to backspin the baseball to all fields. Finished the day 2-for-2 with a double, a walk, two RBIs and two runs scored. Was 4.58 down the line on the line drive double into the right-center field gap. Also stole three bases. Defensively, looks natural in center field with easy actions and clean routes. Follow left/left outfielder in the 2023 class.
