The speedy shortstop posted the top 60 time on day 2 of Top Prospect Games in June.  Showcased short, compact swing and good pop for size (88 Exit Velo). Rose from 93 to 40thoverall (+53).  Committed to San Diego State in July.

60: 6.60 INF Velo: 78 Exit Velo: 88

6-foot-1, 165-pound tall, athletic frame with long limbs and potential to add more size. Offensively, shows good rhythm in the box. Setup is talland very balanced. Gathers with a leg lift then very effectively gets to a good position to hit. Lower half showed great deceleration patterns and good transfer of energy. Loses a lot of power and adjustability by putting a ton of force into the knob at launch. If he can learn to smoothly and quickly enter the zone has the ability to be a top hitter in East Tennessee.  Defensively, his speed (6.60) shows with an efficient first step to the ball. Shows ability to throw from multiple arm angles with good accuracy. A must watch in 2020.
