7-28-16
Oklahoma State recruit. 6-foot-1, 200-pound frame, broad shoulders, thick legs, strong hands. One of the more impressive offensive prospects in attendance. Right-handed hitter, front leg heavy setup, barrel tipped towards the pitcher, maintains excellent rhythm throughout, moderate leg kick, short stride followed by bat speed that produced a different sound off the barrel, launching balls from line to line with power. Taylor easily produced two of the better rounds of BP at this elite event. Defensively, showcased efficient footwork, clean exchanges, and a strong arm, delivering accurate throws with a top pop time of 1.94.

Oklahoma State recruit. 6-foot-1, 200-pound frame, muscular build, defined lower half, strong forearms and hands. Offensively, was a clear standout, arguably the top right-handed bat at the Super 60. Advanced, quiet approach at the plate. Generates premium bat speed with little effort, simple and strong to the ball, barrel stays flat through zone for extended time, consistently barreled balls, center cut, to both power alleys with backspin carry. Mechanically quiet, repeats well, rhythm in hand load, maintains excellent balance through contact, stays strong through the ball. Registered 104 mph exit velocity with wood, second-best at the event. Highly athletic feet for his stature. Agile behind the plate, concise footwork out of the chute, moves well laterally, ran a 7.18 laser-timed 60. Solid receiver, shows soft hands, blocks well, flexibility in the hips, low setup, strong base. Pop times ranged between 2.01-2.05, average carry and accuracy, 76 mph from the crouch.
