10/24/20

6-foot-1, 185 pound right-handed hitting OF. Two-time Team Kentucky Future Games selection. Continues to improve speed with current best 60 time at 6.95. Balanced plate setup and loads back with a leg kick. Shows flashes of gap power. Generates good bat speed through the zone (72.92 avg Blast). Occasional home run power. Top exit velocity at 96.76 during BP via Trackman and top ball flight distance at 353 feet. Projects defensively as an athletic right fielder with the arm strength to play there. Top throws at 89 mph, strong and accurate. Works through the ball with good athleticism.

6-foot-1, 185 pound right handed hitting primary outfielder. Athletic frame. One of only two 2022 position players to be selected for Team KY for the 2019 Future Games. Ran 7.10 60-yard dash, should easily end up as a sub 7 guy as he continues to progress through high school career. Flashes bat speed and barrel whip through the zone with projectable power. Good arm strength at 87 mph. Presently projects as a corner outfielder, middle of the order type bat.
