6/19/14 - 6-foot-3, 215-pound right-handed hitting catcher currently ranked No. 74 in Illinois’ 2015 class, No. 299 overall.  Large frame, extremely strong…hits from a wide balanced setup, with a short stride, and hands held high initially, dropping back and down to load.  Bad speed is evident, but cuts off finish at the end of swing with some stiffness, producing exit velocity up to 90 mph.  Defensively, throws from short, over the top arm action, reeling off pop times between 2.01-2.07 with accuracy on the bag.  Threw 76 mph from the crouch, and ran a 7.47 60.
