6 foot, 175-pound athletic build.  Offensively he works from the right side using a tall setup. Works back in his load using a leg kick.  Hands work down and back during the load with his upper body leaning over and in toward the plate.  Balanced throughout his swing, with some feel for his barrel.  Barrel works flat through the zone, getting extension out front.  Average bat speed with his exit velocity reaching 90 mph.  Plays through balls in the outfield with average hands.  Shuffles into his throws after catch, creating momentum.  Quick, loose arm with a long arm action, throwing from a high ¾ slot.  Arm peaked at 91 mph from the outfield.  Recorded a 3.84 in the 30-yard dash and 4.64 in the 5-10-5.

6.75 runner at the State Games workout.  Average carry from the outfield with good accuracy.  Athletic approach to the ball and showed an ability to track the ball in center in game situations.  Flat through the zone, working to stay gap-to-gap.  Added strength should continue to add bat speed.

Twitchy athlete ran a 7.08 sixty.  Thin, developing 6-foot, 165 pound frame.  Arm speed measured at 86 from the outfield and 81 across the infield.  Exit velocity peaked at 79 off the barrel.  Average hands and fluid feet through the ball, working to play through most balls on the infield.  Transitions to a long arm action and over-the-top slot showing a feel for accuracy, with carry.  Active feet and a quick arm are present.  Right handed hitter works from a tall base and open stance.  Uses a short stride while loading the bat head to a vertical position.  Waggle in the bat head through the launch position and creating different launch points.  Average barrel awareness that can improve.  Looseness is present in the body and swing.  Level, wants extension, while working the gaps.  Strength will improve the quickness and the frame is ready to handle more strength. 
On the bump, fastball sat 78-81, touching 83.  Threw strikes with all three pitches from a quick high-3/4 slot.  Some effort present.  Breaking ball has sharp 11/5 tilt at 65-68.  Occasionally cuts the change-up at 67-69.  Threw a couple of changes to the arm side with arm side action.
