Verbally committed to Southern.

7/25/19

6-foot-1, 225-pound two-way player, strong and athletic frame, thick lower half. Known more as a bat at the hot corner, pitched this day against the Illinois Braves and pushed his fastball up to 88 mph, sitting it at 86-87 mph with run and occasional sink. Short breaking slider at 78 mph, worked on a 10/4 plane. Threw in stretch only, easy delivery, works in-line, upright at finish. Arm played short out of a high ¾ window. Got deep into counts as the walks started to pile up, left balls up only making it two innings, struck out three all with fastballs up. Later in the tournament, Ashley played first and returned to the heart of the order where he showed his explosive bat speed with true power potential. He possesses strong hands with aggressive intent to damage the ball to any field as he put a towering two-run shot over the left/centerfield fence against GoPro in the Playoff Bracket. 

1/27/19

6-foot-1, 228-pound, extra-large, physically-imposing two-way prospect. Has lost about 20 pounds since our last look. Offensively, has some of the more impressive raw bat speed in the class. Right-handed hitter, tall, open, relaxed setup, smooth load, leg-kick timing trigger and stays balanced through contact. Loose, fast hands, swings with controlled aggression and looks to drive the baseball with authority. Explosive bat speed, fluid rhythm, natural lift in swing and power potential to all fields. 95 mph exit velocity from a tee. Defensively, profiles as a corner infielder. Moves well for size, light on his feet, steady sure hands, clean transfer and plays through the baseball. Loose arm action, high ¾ slot and throws carry across the diamond. 4.51 runner, home-to-first. On the mound, right-handed pitcher, controlled, deliberate wind up works with rhythm and balance. Short, quick arm action out of a high ¾ window. Fastball, straight action, sat 82-83 mph. Slider, 10/4 shape, sharp action at times, 69-71 mph.

7/29/18

A two-way player, showed pop from the right side of the plate. Simple swing creates easy power, gap to gap. Homer to center field on Day 1 of the Mid-America, added a couple more extra-base hits on Day 2. On the mound works out of a ¾ slot, fastball sits 82-84, touched 85 mph, arm side action. Breaking ball has slurve type action, 71 mph.

1/28/18

6-foot-1, 245-pound corner infielder with some projectability. Right-handed hitter, balanced, open setup into leg kick stride, maintains balance throughout. Consistent bat speed, quick-twitch, regular hard-hit contact, gap-to-gap with power projection; 94 mph exit velocity from a tee. Athletic arm action from a low ¾ slot, clean exchange with accuracy; 77 mph in the infield. On the mound, tall-and-fall delivery, lands open. Quick, loose arm speed thrown from ¾ slot. Fastball, slight arm-side run and sink, 81-82 mph. Changeup, maintains arm speed, some run and fade, 72-74 mph. Slider, sharp, tight 11/5 shape, 68-70 mph. 4.75 home-to-first.

De-committed from Southern.
