7/12/17 - Home-1st: 4.19, Position Velocity:  IF-78, OF-80, Exit Velocity: 89
6/14/17 - 60 Time: 6.37, Position Velocity:  OF-83, Exit Velocity: 91
5-foot-10, 170-pound OF had one of the most impressive performances of the Top Prospect Games. After running a 6.37 60-yard dash, Puckett was sent back to run again to verify the laser-time. Second 60 was 6.40. He showed more physical strength and pop in his bat than previously, as he smoked a triple in game play and hit what may have been the hardest ball of the event, a rocket line drive to third base. Puckett flashed his true center field speed with a high-light reel catch in the left-center gap in completing his impressive day.
2/12/17 - 60 Time: 6.65, Position Velocity: IF-77, OF-82, Exit Velocity: 86
6/15/16 - 60 Time: 6.75, Position Velocity:  OF-83, Exit Velocity: 89
5-foot-9, 155-pound RHH showed why he is one of the top ranked outfielders in the 2018 class, posted the top 60 time of the event at 6.75. He has a quiet approach at the plate with no wasted movement and a repeatable swing that produces consistent line drive contact,  impressed with one of the best rounds of BP of the day, uses his athleticism well in the outfield and has a quick release that produces solid arm strength, went 1-for-4 in game play with a single to LF and a stolen base.
2/13/16 - 60 Time: 6.78, Position Velocity:  OF-81, Exit Velocity: 90
5-foot-9, 155-pound RHH continues to impress as one of the top OF in the 2018 class. Hits from a balanced stance, short stride, generates easy bat speed, gets the barrel on plane and keeps it in the zone an extended period of time, occasionally can get more use from lower half and backside, line drive type hitter with a gap to gap approach, showed best exit velocity to date, runs very well and projects as a top of the order bat. Athletic defender plays through the ball with occasional two-handed approach, high-3/4 release with solid carry on throws, arm strength was down some from previous event (88 mph).
1/24/16 - Home-1st: 4.37, Position Velocity:  IF-75, OF-88, Exit Velocity: 87
5-foot-9, 155-pound right-handed hitter continues to solidify his status as a top OF in the 2018 class. Hits from balanced stance with a short stride, generates easy bat speed, gets the barrel on plane and keeps it in the zone a long time, consistently barrels the baseball with a line drive approach and flashes of gap to gap power, speed is a big part of offensive game. Defensively, athleticism allows him to play multiple positions but likely projects as a CF at the next level, showed a big jump in outfield arm strength at 88 mph from a high-3/4 release, moves well as a middle infielder with a quick exchange and sure hands.
10/11/15 - 5-foot-9, 155 pound prospect flashed his speed running a 6.72 60. Right-handed hitter hits from a balanced stance, short stride, generates easy bat speed with a short swing path, line drive type hitter works all fields, 84 mph exit velocity, went 1-for-3 in game play with a double to center field. From the outfield, showed a big jump in arm strength, 79 mph velocity from a ¾ release, plays through the ball well, good set up on fly balls with momentum coming forward on the catch, athletic defender with solid all-around game, high energy player  has potential to be a top class of 2018 prospect.
10/4/14 - 5-foot-9, 145-pound right-handed hitter, hits from a balanced stance with a short stride, short swing path, line drive type hitter, generates good bat speed for young prospect, 79 mph exit velocity off the tee, good speed for age with 4.52 home to first time, went 1-for-3 in game play with a bunt single showing ability to use speed in his offensive game.  Defensively, shows soft hands and good lateral movement in the infield, good body control, gets rid of the ball with a quick exchange, throws from a low ¾ slot across the infield, accurate throws with 67 mph arm strength, two-handed approach in the outfield with 74 mph arm strength on accurate throws to the third base bag, 2018 prospect to follow.
