Physical: Highly-athletic, high-waisted 5-foot-11, 185lb frame with strength carried well in the movements. 7.27 runner in the 60-yard dash. 

Offensively: LHH - Upright, tall/open stance as the hands showed rhythm waving off and on the shoulder to start; utilized a leg kick stride with hip coil at the apex, generating good rhythm through a loud, slightly uphill path into the hitting zone. Found tons of success driving the ball deep to the pull-side gap (RCF) able to lift the baseball en route to a 50% hard hit rate (via Trackman). Good feel for the top hand and displayed some barrel lag, producing hard extra-base hit contact when getting extended (330 foot batted ball distance, T97 mph bat-exit velocity). High intent swings, but could manipulate to different quadrants of the plate, adding the ability to hit for average down the road. 

Defensively: The primary outfielder operated with confidence during defensive evals, staying behind the baseball in the air, and getting good hops when attacking with chest over toes. Fielded calmly off the right side, scooping effortlessly with a clean exchange at the waist and released from a quicker, H ¾ (79 mph arm) on line to the target; corner outfield considerations.

Physical: 5’11 185lb OF ran a 7.46 laser timed 60-yard dash. Athletic frame has room to add speed and strength with time. 

Offensively: He starts with a shoulder width stance and his front foot slightly open. His hands have some movement and are pushed forward towards his face. He has a long load between his front leg and hands as he goes through his timing mechanism. He gets his body into a solid launch position before firing the barrel on a slightly uphill path through the hitting zone. 

Defensively: He approaches the ball with long strides, moving with good body control as he receives the ball off the ground. He flows his momentum through the catch and has an easy transfer between his throwing hand and glove. His arm action stays short and works downhill towards his target.
