North Carolina State commit.  6 foot 1, 180-pound build with quick twitch athleticism.  Advanced defender with confident hands.  Feet and hands work in rhythm at shortstop.  Funnels to the midsection after catch, with quick exchanges and the arm slot matching the play.  Quick arm across the diamond with carry.  Arm peaked at 87 mph.  Athletic, slightly open setup from the right side of the plate.  Smooth load with a small leg kick and barrel tip, getting the hands ready to go.  Gap to gap approach, with a more level path through the zone.  Exit velocity recorded at 91 mph and more to come as body adds strength.  Recorded a 3.75 in the 30-yard dash.

North Carolina State commit.  Rangy athletic frame.  Length to the limbs with strength present.  Stands 6-foot-1, 172 pounds with room to continue to mature in the coming years.  Advanced defender with great rhythm and athletic hands.  Good bend, working through the ball with balance.  Funnels to the midsection.  Quick, clean, athletic transitions to a short arm action.  Easy carry and accuracy at 81 mph across the diamond.  Better quickness on the infield than the 7.02 sixty suggests, moving with efficiency and good range.  Arm slot can match the needed throw when on the move.  Right handed hitter is balanced with waggle in his hands.  Loads with a weight shift back, slight leg kick, and a bat tip toward the pitcher.  Loose and quick through the zone.  High barrel ability.  Uphill leverage, working for extension with a slight pull tendency.  Exit velocity peaked at 94 mph off the barrel.

04.14.15
Rangy body with long levers and room to add strength.  Right handed hitter is balanced, slightly open in setup.  Flat barrel uses a lot of waggle to set timing.  Loses some feel for barrel positioning with the movement.  Leg kick and strides back to even.  Average bat speed.  Advanced ability to catch the ball at SS.  Longer arm stroke with some carry and accuracy.  Back hand side needs reps and work.
