Committed to UNCW.  Re-classed to the 2021 class, planning to take a gap year prior to enrolling at UNCW.

8/07/19

Athletic frame with strength present in the lower half.  Stands 5-foot-10, 170 pounds.  Fastball up to 89, playing heavy out of the hand.  Small side step, lifting to the mid chest with a leg swing.  Long, strong arm swing.  Some uphill leverage out of balance.  Works on-line, landing square, slightly across his line, gaining ground with his stride.  Loose, quick hips.  Athletic delivery from foot strike to release.  High-3/4 release.  Fastball attacked the zone, sitting 86-89 out of the wind-up.  Fastball at 83-85 in the stretch.  Landed the breaking ball consistently at 70 with hard 11/5 tilt.  Occasionally around the curveball, creating more sweep.  Change-up works with some deception out of the hand.  Fade as it nears the hitting zone at 75-76.  Still somewhat raw, but the arm speed, arm strength, and athletic hips suggest a higher ceiling that he may get to soon.

5 foot 11, 165-pound build.  Hits from the right side with a balanced setup.  Works back in his load with a small leg kick and medium length stride.  Quick hands with bat whip through the zone.  Looks to drive the ball gap to gap with feel for the barrel.  Exit velocity recorded at 82 mph.  Arm has life from the outfield reaching 92 mph.  Aggressively plays through the ball with average hands.  Long arm action, throwing from an over the top slot with accuracy.  Recorded a 4.02 in the 30-yard dash, 4.43 in the 5-10-5, and 9-3 in the standing broad jump. 
Simple delivery to balance, with a slight shoulder turn at balance.  Creates some uphill torque in shoulders as the arm works through a long path to an over-the-top release.  Clean and athletic, lands on-line and square.  Fastball sat 82-85, hard, and around the zone.  Breaking ball is sharp, with similar hand speed to the fastball, at 70-71.  Change-up is still developing, occasionally cutting out of the hand, ranging 73-74.  Works to attack the zone.

06.11.18

Average 5-foot-10, 160 pound frame.  Quickness and strength exist. Posted a 6.88 sixty on the laser timer.  Also touched 89 mph from the outfield on positional throws. Defensively, plays through the ball with average hands.  Clean exchanges work to a long arm swing and over-the-top slot. Quick arm produces advanced accuracy and carry. Right handed hitter is open and balanced in his setup.  Weight shift back, setting the swing to uphill, and working on the back leg throughout. Average bat speed, geared to pull. Barrel awareness can increase. Exit velocity peaked at 79 mph off the barrel.
