Cape Cod- Seeing very little time behind the plate last spring for the Cardinals as he was buried behind No. 1 overall pick Henry Davis, Rushing has taken the Cape by storm in the batter's box, showing the ability to hit for both power (.542 SLG%) and average (.314). He's strong with well above average bat speed as he drops the head and his barrel whips through the hitting zone. There is some swing/miss to his game (17 BB vs 31 SO in 142 Cape plate appearances), but he will hit the ball where it's pitched and produces consistent, hard contact to all fields. During my look, he especially feasted on low heat, pummeling it for extra bases. Among his many highlights was a 407' HR to near dead center field with a 107 mph exit velocity. Defensively, Rushing is a work in progress with agile feet and a plus arm that he is not afraid to show. With a quick release, he's aggressive and confident in his throwing and popped a 1.95 to the bag during game action. However, it is his hard hands and receiving skills that lag behind. All too often the ball clanked off his mitt, allowing runners to advance. Built like a tank at 5-foot-11, 235 pounds, Rushing can also play first base, but his height could be an issue. Overall, the left handed hitter possesses top three round talent with the potential to become a middle of the order run producer at the pro level. For that to be realized, he must lessen his swing/miss and he has much work to do catching the baseball in order to elevate his draft value to those rounds.

10/7/17 - Louisville commit.  6-0, 200-pound catcher w/ some of the best game power in the state.  Hits from a slightly open, slightly crouched stance w/ back shoulder hand location.  Leg kick w/ proper load.  Huge power, ball sounds different off bat.  Natural loft.  Homered in game w/ double off wall, hard single.  Athletic w/ plus arm strength, projects to stay behind the plate.  One of the top 2019 prospects in the state.
