4.23.18 - State JC of Florida commit, currently ranked No. 20 in the Illinois’ 2018 class. Right-handed hitting center fielder; lean, athletic, live body with wiry strength. High-level defensive center fielder with natural oufield actions. Covers a ton of ground, quick first step, gets to top-end speed quickly and takes concise routes to the baseball. Almost made a highlight-reel play early on in the game, ranging into deep left-center field on a ball tailing away from him. Laid out, full-extension and the ball tipped off the tip of his glove. Made a number of other plays look relatively easy.  During pregame I/O played through the baseball, soft hands and arm showed well above average; plays true, accurate and carries. At the plate, right-handed hitter, leads off for Barrington. Confident, athletic look in the box, smooth load and leg-lift timing trigger. Not your prototypical leadoff hitter swing; looks to drive the baseball and is aggressive to pitches in the zone. Present bat speed and quick twitch in swing. Smoked a double down the left-field line in his second at-bat, 4.64 on the turn. Also walked, was hit by a pitch and reached on an error. High-level 2018 outfield prospect.
