5-foot-8, 165-pound, strong, tapered build, broad shouldered in a compact frame. Immediately made his presence known with an event best, 6.72 60-yard dash. Quick twitch abilities carried directly over to his outfield session, aggressive routes. Fields in stride, quick exchange into his short arms cycle, carry and accuracy, over the top arm slot, 75 mph in August to 82 mph in November. Offensively, starts in a crouched set up, leading into a toe-tap load, slight dive into the ball, tends to land heavily on front foot. Compact swing stays on plane, mostly middle to pull side with flashes of pop; 81 mph exit velo. His above average athleticism and quick twitch abilities should be an interesting follow as he continues to develop.

Uncommitted 5-foot-8 165, Gladney has a tapered build in a small frame.  He is athletic with quick twitch and good strength. He posted an event best 6.57 60-yard dash. He has an explosive first step, getting to full speed quickly. He profiles as a centerfield, leadoff type guy.  He maintains a compact line drive swing in a middle of the field approach that is short to and through the ball. His twitch was evident in his 85 MPH exit velocity off the tee. He recorded multiple extra base hits during the game, including one hopping the centerfield wall for a triple. He totaled three hits on the day. Defensively, he covers a lot of ground with closing speed. A positional velocity of 75 mph, he has enough arm strength to use a quick exchange and hit the cutoff.  There is an attractive, unpolished element to his game that provides for a high ceiling with the advent of a strong short game to accompany his game changing speed. His strength and twitch could provide some sneaky power down the line as well

Fall '18 - Strong, 5-foot-9, 160, Gladney is a physically developed smaller framed player with well defined strength.  He moved easily around the outfield and caught what he was able to get to, Playing left field, his throws were online.  The limited look did not provide an opportunity to reveal any real showing of arm strength, footwork or transition to throw. When he started his bat, he maintained a short, quick, on plane swing.
