Average 5-foot-9, 160-pound frame has some quickness in it.  Ran a 2.98 twenty-yard dash and a 4.76 in the 5-10-5 agility test.  Standing broad jump of 9’6” shows some strength in the lower half.  Behind the plate shows and ease and comfort in his setup.  Wide, with flexibility in the hips, the hands work to present strikes well.  Pop time ranged 2.11-2.26 with some accuracy.  Positional velocity of 70 mph from the crouch.  In the outfield, aggressive through the baseball with a clean transition to a short arm swing and high-3/4 slot.  Accuracy and carry are present on throws peaking at 80 mph out of the hand.  Right handed hitter is balanced in his setup with a waggle in the bat head.  Early rhythm on a short stride producing average bat speed and some feel for the barrel.  Back side is very aggressive as he works to stay gap-to-gap.  Swing work inside-out at times.  High finish with the hands on most swings.  Exit velocity peaked at 81 off the barrel.

High motor receiver, working to keep his pitchers in the zone.  Motor may hurt blocking as he lunges forward, throwing the body at times.  No questioning his desire to block. Long arm action, turning the ball over early as he gets to an over-the-top slot.  Pop times ranged 2.06 - 2.32 with some accuracy.  Exchange can get stronger, allowing the arm to work with better rhythm.  Arm speed measured 73 mph from the crouch.  Right handed hitter stands 5-foot-8, 150 pounds.  Tall and balanced setup.  Short stride with a minimal load.  Flat through the zone with some barrel awareness.  Back side action is lacking throughout swing.  Exit velocity topped at 82 off the barrel.
