5-foot-10, 175-pound athletic frame. Confident in the box, the left-handed hitter's best exit velocity was 84 mph. Begins in a balanced athletic stance with a high load, then uses a short stride. Bat speed is above average, has a loose level swing plane and high finish. During his round he produced some loud contact and found lots of barrels. Gap to gap approach. Above average while in the infield, made throws at velocities up to 74 mph; had soft hands, and athletic footwork. Recorded an outfield position velocity of 83 mph; shows consistent rhythmic footwork, and a clean exchange. Movements laterally were athletic. Showed consistent accuracy to the base with a loose arm action and a high ¾ slot. During the event, clocked a 60 time of 7.31. On the mound, had a high ¾ arm angle and a long arm action with above average arm speed. Uses easy effort in his delivery. Consistent balance point. Lands square.

Interesting two-way prospect is currently one of the top 2023 prospects in the state. 5-foot-9, 175 pound athletic frame. Uses long arm swing. High 3/4 slot. Generates easy velocity. Fastball mostly straight at 80-82 mph. Shows feel for 68-70 mph curveball with 1/7 action, good spin and depth, slider shows same velocity with slightly sharper break. 70-71 mph changeup thrown with good arm speed. Definitely a LHP to keep a close eye on in the 2023 class.
At the plate, slightly open stance with leg kick trigger. Fairly compact swing. Works the middle of the field. Flashes occasoinal gap power for age. 81 mph exit velocity off the tee. Ran 7.58 60-yard dash. Moves well around the first base bag with soft hands. Accurate throws. 77 mph across the diamond, 82 mph from OF. Works through the ball well as an OF providing some position versatility as a corner OF.
