East Carolina commit.  Strength present in 6 foot 2, 190-pound frame.  Relaxed setup from the left side of the plate.  Leg kick during his load with a quiet barrel.  Has pop to his pull side with lift in his swing.  Drove two balls during game action.  Above average bat speed with his exit velocity recorded at 92 mph.  Quick transfers with a short arm action, throwing from an over the top slot with his arm topping at 84 mph to second base.  Accurate arm with carry and pop times recorded at 1.94-1.96.  Plays through balls on the infield with average hands.  Arm topped at 89 mph across the diamond.  Recorded a 7.79 in the 60. 
Arm strength carries to the mound where he sat 85-89.  Fastball is heavy with run and sink to the arm side.  Easy, quick, and loose through his high-3/4 release, the fastball jumps.  Good change-up at 78-81.  Maintained arm speed with arm side run to the pitch.  Breaking ball was erratic with late 11/5 tilt at 77.  Works smooth and level with an average kick to the low chest.   Lands on-line and square.  Good extension from a clean arm.

6 feet 1, 180-pound strong build.  Hits from the left side with an athletic setup.  Smooth load, with a short stride, getting his lower half through the ball.  Good hands with strength in his swing.  Showed power during batting practice driving balls to his pull side.  Gets extension with his exit velocity peaking at 86 mph. Shows arm strength from behind the plate, with quick, fluid feet and quick exchanges.  Short arm action, throwing from an over the top slot.  Accurate arm with carry to his throws.  Pop times at 1.94-2.08 with positional velocity topping at 79 mph.  Played well defensively behind the plate in game.  Recorded a 7.85 in the 60-yard dash.

On the mound, the fastball is firm with hard arm-side boar.  83-86, the action helps the fastball to jump on hitters with late, heavy tilt.  Power breaking ball at 69-73.  Hard 11/5 tilt.  Around the zone with each pitch using some of the lack of command to create some discomfort.  Really quick arm through a high-3/4 slot with a long arm swing.  Some effort in the release, working to find consistent rhythm.  Level and on-line, lands square rotating with a slight fall to the 1B side.   

Young player with a lot of growth and development ahead.  Stands 5-foot-10, 165 pounds with an average frame.  Pop times ranged 2.11 – 2.32 with a positional velocity of 71 from the crouch.  Good feel for accuracy.  On the infield, hands have some stiffness in them as he cradles the ball to the right hip for the exchange.  Works to load the arm with his feet getting long at times.  Arm swing varies on the play, working to a high-3/4 slot, touching 75 from shortstop.  Left-handed hitter starts athletic and open in his base.  Loads back, keeping the bat head flat.  Short stride works to average bat speed.  Some uphill leverage with an occasional inside-out approach, that would cut across the ball at times.  Average barrel awareness with an exit velocity of 78 mph.
