North Greenville commit.  6 foot 2, 195-pound strong build.  Open setup from the left side of the plate.  Smooth load working back with a small leg kick.  Fluid swing, with looseness in his hands, creating bat whip through the zone.  Found lots of barrels working gap to gap.  Ability to keep barrel in zone with above average bat speed.  Exit velocity recorded at 98 mph.  Fluid feet with average hands on defense.  Long arm action, throwing from a high ¾ slot.  Positional velocity peaked at 75 mph.  Recorded a 4.07 in the 30-yard dash and 4.34 in the 5-10-5.

Strength is present in a 6 feet 1, 200 pound frame. Left hand hitter uses a balanced, open stance. Smooth leg kick loads the body.  Barrel works from to a slight lag at the launch.  Generates above average bat speed.  Exit velocity topped at 91mph. Gap to gap approach and driving the baseball with authority.  Wants extension, while staying on the ball.  Aggressive stride and barrel inconsistency can cause the barrel to get out the zone quick at times. When on time, flashes a shorter path getting extension out front.  Balanced with rhythm throughout the swing. Defensively, works with soft hands and fluid feet.  Transitions the ball cleanly to a short arm action.   Recorded times of 4.13 in the 30-yard dash, 4.27 in the 5-10-5 agility test, and 9-0 in the standing broad jump.
05.21.17
Left handed hitter has some strength producing an exit velocity of 84 mph off the barrel.  Balanced with a crouch, loads the body with a leg kick working to a short stride.  Better than average bat speed works for extension, with a pull tendency.  A little stiff, there is good head discipline throughout.  Ran a 7.33 sixty and works with average feet that can get heavy when catching the ball too deep.  Wants to play through the ball, using a long arm action to a top slot.  Arm measured 71 mph across the field.
