Creighton commit. Athletic, strong build. 5-foot-11, 170-pound left-handed hitting infielder. Tall, balanced setup, long stride, high leg kick. Quick hands, stays inside the baseball, consistently found the barrel, fluid rhythm through contact. Above-average athlete with a strong run tool. Went 2-for-2 with two walks and two RBIs for Naperville Renegades against STARTERS 17U. Also took the mound on Saturday night against Cangelosi Sparks. His unassuming smaller frame flummoxes hitters when he sits 87-89 mph. He also mixes his timing frequently, pausing at his balance point, quick-pitching; constantly looking to gain an extra edge from the rubber. Fastball sat 87-89 mph in the first couple frames, hard arm-side run, feel for the corners. Curveball

Creighton commit, currently ranked No. 75 in the Illinois’ 2020 class. 5-foot-11, 170-pound, athletically-built, left-handed hitting middle infielder; sneaky strong frame. Started at second base and led-off. Typical lead-off, table-setter type; confident in the box, grinds out at-bats, makes pitch-to-pitch adjustments, hard contact. Will flash bat speed, present bat strength, path works uphill, will topspin balls to the pull-side. Reached safely in four of his five at-bats; finished 3-for-5 with a stolen base, two RBI and two runs scored. Ran a 4.33 and 4.43 down the line on two groundballs, was 4.76 on the turn on a flyout to center field. Defensively, smooth infield actions, internal clock, quick release, advanced body control and soft hands. Flashed enough arm strength to move to the left-side of the infield moving forward.

Creighton commit. 5-foot-10, 155-pound middle infield prospect with length in levers, athleticism in frame. Led off for Neuqua Valley against Edwardsville. Left-handed hitter, balanced/crouched setup, pre-pitch rhythm, big leg kick load into long stride. Creates bat speed, path is long and on a slightly uphill plane, loose hands, fluid throughout. Went 1-for-3 with two walks, and pulled a 90 mph fastball over the right fielder’s head for a lead-off triple. Plays with a high motor, high baseball IQ, is a step ahead of everyone. Defensively, reliable hands, quick transfer, feet are agile, athletic arm action. Started a quick L-4-6 double play that was near a triple play, halting a rally in a tight game.

Verbally committed to Creighton.

Defensively, steady hands, fluid footwork, long, loose arm action, high ¾ arm slot, throws flashed carry across the infield at 83 mph. Ran a 7.13 laser timed 60.
