Wichita State commit. Fast-twitch frame at 5-foot-7, 145-pounds. Not only did Roccaforte run a 6.82 60-yard dash, but he showed power unique to his frame. Aggressive hack, medium leg kick as he loads his hands down and back, before striding forward, creating separation to provide plenty of juice and organic incline in his swing. The power stems from a whippy barrel and explosive lower half weight transfer. On the infield, Roccaforte plays low through the ball, has a quick first step and shows plenty of range to stay in the middle infield at the next level. Fast exchange into a quick, clean arm stroke with a top velocity across the infield of 88. Solid sense of timing with the ability to throw from different slots.

Roccaforte has a quick-twitch frame at 5-foot-7, 135-pounds. The Wichita State recruit plays fast and has life in his body as he gets to full speed quickly. After running a 6.74 60-yard dash, the right-handed hitter showed good power for his size during batting practice while posting an exit velocity of 86 mph off the tee. He starts from an open stance, then loads with an athletic leg kick to generate leverage as his hands trigger back, landing with good separation. Loose hands with strong contact on the barrel, outstanding sense of timing and barrel awareness. Easy weight transfer, short path, strong top hand, loose finish. At shortstop, Roccaforte has fast-smooth footwork with soft hands, quick exchange and clean throwing motion. Shows high level range and can throw on the run. With his all-around tools and moxy, Roccaforte will have a chance to be an impact player for the Shockers as a freshman.
