Arizona commit, currently ranked No. 21 in the Illinois 2022 class. Thick lower-half with wide shoulders, standing 5-foot-8, 165-pounds, looks bigger than what he is listed. Hit out of the two-hole as the designated hitter for Saint Viator on Saturday, going 2-for-2 with two walks. He starts in a low/crouched position and stays low throughout his stride, before moving into a flat path through the zone. His hands are strong and work direct to the baseball, creating hard-contact consistently, showcasing impressive bat-to-ball skills. He also demonstrated a keen eye at the plate, consistently battling through at-bats and getting deep into counts, also drawing two walks against some high-caliber arms.
