UNC Wilmington commit, committing shortly after the Top Prospect Games.  Lanky frame that should continue to add strength.  Stands 6-foot-4, 200 pounds.  Good angle on his fastball when down zone from an over-the-top slot.  Fastball ranged 83-87.  Feel for the zone, lacking specific command at this time but it should develop.  Breaking ball is erratic at times, showing better feel as the outing progressed.  Similar window as the fastball, the breaking ball has 11/5 tilt 71-76.  Occasionally around the pitch with side to side action.  Some effort in the delivery, lifting to an average leg kick that is intended to load the front hip and coil the body.  Slightly rotational out of balance, lands on-line and square.  Average stride length, falling down the hill slightly.  Long arm swing has some quickness at the release.  High ceiling as the feel for the body and arm increases with age.

Large frame at 6-foot-3, 195 pounds.  Strength in the lower half with standing broad jump of 9’7”.  Ran 4.13 thirty / 4.52 5-10-5 agility shuttle.  Tall setup, balanced and athletic from the right side of the box. Smooth load and leg kick to set his weight.  Bat works from a relaxed position.  Short path with quickness creating line drive contact.  Flat through the zone, rotating on the back side.  Average barrel awareness, occasionally allowing the hands to be tied up.  Exit velocity of 91 with extension off the barrel.  On the infield, worked to play through the ball with active feet and average to above hands.  Hips tend to stay high.  Fluid and clean, funnels to the mid-section and exchanges to a short arm action and high-3/4 slot.  Throws from a vertical position, following the throw.  Carry and accuracy are present with a positional velocity peaking at 84.
On the mound, big righty works with a short arm swing with quickness to a high-3/4 slot.  Ball stays hidden behind body line, jumping on hitters.  Short strider, coils at balance with body turn, uncoiling to a closed landing and square foot-strike.  Fastball sat 80-83, filling up the zone, with arm side run fading early out of the hand.  Breaking ball sat 69-71 with late 11/5 tilt.  Has feel for the pitch, attacking the glove.  Change-up is third pitch at 74-76, maintaining fastball hand speed, and creating early fade out of the hand.  Profiles as reliever but as delivery becomes more athletic and extension increases he could alter the perception.

Lanky 6-foot-3, 195 pound build.  Ran a 7.37 sixty.  Right handed hitter works from a tall and balanced base, loading back with his weight during a leg kick.  Short stride gets to a quick bat through the zone, staying level, with a line drive approach staying in the middle of the field.  Hands load in toward the body slightly, producing average barrel awareness.  Exit velocity peaked at 85 mph.  Works to stay athletic on the infield, playing high through the hips.  Hands and feet fight to find rhythm.  Exchanges work low getting to a long arm swing and over-the-top slot.  80 mph across the diamond with some accuracy and average to slightly above carry.  Frame and quickness suggest good projection left in the near future.
On the bump, fastball sat 77-81.  Breaking ball worked with a hump out of the hand and gradual 12/6 shape at 65-69.  Erratic syncing the arm and delivery leading to up-down issues in the zone.  Slight stab as the arm worked to the over-the-top slot, creating some effort.
