"[Carpenter] looked even more impressive at the plate where his left-handed bat produced eye-opening power throughout the NPI. With one of the most imposing frames in the class at 6-foot-5, 215-pounds with lean, defined strength and plenty of athleticism, Carpenter gets to that strength with a simple stroke with quick hands that allow him to work flat through the zone in producing effortless power with louder exit velocities. He demonstrated an ability to change planes and make adjustments, and there is plus-power potential with fluidity to the all-around athleticism. Increasing his stock as a two-way player at the next level, Carpenter hopped on the mound in a relief appearance and showcased a quick arm with a mid to upper-80s fastball that will likely top 90 mph in coming years along with quality feel for secondary offerings. However, the power potential as a middle-of-the-order type bat might be too appealing, and with a frame that is already pro-ready, look for MLB scouts to circle Utah perennial power, American Fork HS, for a visit next spring." – Shooter Hunt, PBR VP of Scouting.

XXL tall frame at 6-5 215 with a physical good look in a uniform. Country strong with big feet and hands. Still room for added weight and strength at manhood. Plays for one of the 6A powerhouse programs in the state, and with 2 years of HS to go, he could break out and do big things. Offensively, he has a semi crouched even prop stance and holds the hands at the shoulder with a vertical bat and close to the body. With an already flexed back knee, he rocks back slightly and softly picks up the foot and lays it down, with a slight turn of the knob and dropping below his shoulder for his load, Carpenter then takes a simple EZ fluid short compact stroke into the baseball with length out front, into a high one hand finish, and the ball jumps off his bat with easy power. Makes all the plays at 1B/OF and will man a corner, as speed is not part of his game. The LH power bat is the carrying tool, to go along with his left arm on the mound. The arm was a brief look and will need more to go off, but the velo (up to 88), build, easy proj power from his LH bat, place him in the conversation among the state’s best players.
