5/21/19The former switch hitting high school catcher hit out of the lead off spot for the Rebels. The physical build obviously jumps out but he’s not just a hitter with enormous pop. His swing is compact with no wasted action but shows nice top hand strength though the zone. Toes were on the inner chalk as he showed no trouble getting to anything on the inner half, doubling on a FB in and also had a single (both to the pull side). Love the set up with the elbows in tight against the body creating that short barrel path. Showed nice discipline by routinely laying off of breaking balls down in the dirt and really has an understanding of the hitting zone. The bat path obviously has some tilt in it. Although the form may not be picturesque, he can run especially for a guy of his stature. Arm strength is adequate from LF but the bat plays big time. May project behind the plate as well. (Sharp)

8/8/18:6’0, 235 pounds. Barrel chested with an extra strong frame and a stocky build. His forearms are the size of many people’s thighs. Deceptively fast considering how bulky his frame is. Spent most of his time at 1B/DH this summer but also made some appearances in the OF. Arm strength grades as above average for whatever position he ends up in. Switch hitter. Uses a wide, balanced set up from the right side. Low leg lift to create separation and get into forward move. Quick hands and a powerful swing that produces consistent line drive contact. Looks more natural from the left side. Swing requires less effort and shows more lift/power. Maintains same quickness with hands. Dillard saw a huge increase in power between his freshman and sophomore seasons at Ole Miss. If he can maintain the production he put up last spring, he’ll be one of the most dynamic bats in the SEC.

3/20/18: Strong bodied left-fielderThomas Dillard,looks like a fullback and shows the strength of one too. He launched balls in batting practice well into the student bleacher seating at Swayze Field. He recently hit a home run 435’ with an exit velocity of 111.7 mph. That’s the highest velo I’ve seen so far his year. (Seifert)
