Physical: Demonstrated advanced feel for a physical 6-foot, 215-pound frame with noticeable strength in the movements. 8.00 runner in the 60-yard dash. Coppin State commit.

Offensively: LHH. Easy balanced, open setup with the hands working with slight rhythm at the shoulder. Utilized a controlled lift-and-replace stride coupled with minimal movement in the hands to get to launch. The barrel plays slightly uphill through the hitting window with comfortability using the pull-side during batting practice. Created natural loft and backspin to all fields with a strong lower half and ability to hit inside the ball. When on time at the front of the plate, generated loud contact for extra bases. Hit into a stiff front side and registered a 92 mph bat-exit velocity per Trackman Baseball. 

Defensively: The first baseman featured a low center of gravity coupled with a soft glove hand working out in front of the body. Fielded the ball off the right foot showcasing solid footwork and feel around the bag. Was able to get back easily on double play feeds and cover himself if need be. Utilized a high ¾ arm-slot with plenty of accuracy across the diamond. 1B - 68 mph

Pitching: LHP - Showcased easy tempo in the delivery with good leg drive and extension on the front side through a fluid high ¾ arm-slot. Each pitch comes out smooth and the same through the throwing window allowing for deception; an 80-82 T83 mph FB with small arm-side run, a tight 67-68 mph CB displaying 1/7 shape, 73-75 mph CH with occasional fade, and a differently shaped 72-73 mph SL with late horizontal.

2.23.19 - 5-foot-11, 210-pound left-handed hitter starts with a slightly-open stance and utilizes a short leg-lift to begin his swing. Displayed a flat bat-path during batting practice with a feel for all fields helping him register a 77 mph bat-exit-velocity. Showcased adequate feel around the bag coupled with soft hands during defensive evaluations as he recorded throws of 69 mph across the infield. Notched an 8.56 60-yard dash time. Primary left-handed pitcher impressed on the mound with a strong lower-half during bullpens. Johnson's fastball sat 75-77 mph with arm-side run from a high 3/4 arm-slot. He had above-average command on 62-66 mph curveballs that featured 1/7 tilt. Changeups showed arm-side fade from 67-69 mph and were thrown with good sell.
