Uncommitted junior. 6-foot, 180-pound right-handed hitting offensive catcher, strong build with athleticism in actions. Hit cleanup against St. Laurence, three quality ABs, went 1-for-2 with two RBI and a walk. Aggressive hitter, hunts the fastball early and looks to do damage. First at-bat was a sacrifice fly to left on a first pitch fastball, flared a hit to right off the end of the bat on the first pitch next time up. Worked a walk on seven pitches and also delivered the sacrifice line out to right that scored the walk-off/winning run. Knows the situation at the plate and got it done on this day, feel for the batter’s box. Smooth pre-pitch, gets separation and generates quick bat speed with extension through the zone, fluid path with length, uphill plane, power potential is present. 2.23 pop times in game, longer transfer to release, some stiffness.

Defensively arm action is short, over the top slot, accurate at times, 75 mph out of the crouch. 2.09-2.14 pop times out of the crouch, hands played soft. 7.70 runner in the 60.

9.16.18 - Uncommitted. 6-foot, 185-pound right-handed hitting catcher. Offensively, laced a double to right-center field. Solid receiver behind the plate, sticks pitches well. Accurate arm, consistent 2.15-2.25 pop times between innings, 2.29 in game.  

6.6.18 - 6-foot, 180-pound, strong, athletic catcher. Offensively, tall, balanced setup, hands load back, leg kick timing-trigger, maintains good balance.
