College baseball’s top defensive shortstop is a Major League ready defender with above-average arm strength and when combined with a quick transfer and the ability to throw from all angles and body postures, gives him plus range in all directions. O'Ferrall's hands are soft and sure. He has all the tools and abilities for a long career as a run-preventer up the middle. He makes the routine play look easy, the good play look routine and the great play, well take a look at his latest web gem…
Offensively, he started the season slowly, but has picked it up recently and is currently slashing .320/.359/.436. He has very good bat-to-ball skills and controls the strike zone. The 6-foot-1 right-handed hitter has struck out in just 7.8% of his plate appearances this season which is boosted by an excellent two-strike approach where he simply throws his hands and puts the ball in play. However, a maximum exit velocity of only 105 mph this season is the primary concern of the scouting industry. In pro baseball, opposing pitchers will simply pound him inside with the hard stuff. He’s viewed by many as a Nick Madrigal-esque type whose value will be solely on defense. Regardless, O’Ferrall is a second half of Day One prospect.

USA CNT: O’Ferrall was the CNT’s top hitter out of the gate during its 10-game international slate, and he finished the summer behind only Kaelen Culpepper in batting average at .463. With a .511 on-base percentage as the team’s leadoff man, the team tended to go as he went offensively. O’Ferrall is a righthanded hitter with a simple, compact stroke that will allow him to hit for a high average. He has limited raw power, but his elevated line-drive swing allows him to run the ball into the gaps with regularity. He’s also a super smooth, dependable defender who makes all the plays, though some of his movements at the position are more unconventional rather than fundamentally sound. He has average arm strength from all angles that plays up at least a half grade. At present, he’s an early Day Two prospect who will need to show improvement with his exit velocities and his over-the-fence power production next season to make a jump.

Extremely athletic defender with plate discipline. In the field very rangy defender with ability to throw on the run and possesses all the tools you would want to see in a high level/high major shortstop. At the plate O'Ferrall was very disciplined versus the opposing Wagner. Worked a deep at bat where he doubled to deep right field and put runners in scoring position to break open what was then a 2-0 game.

O’Ferrall is 6-0 with an athletic frame that has some strength present and plenty of projection left to it. He hits from the right side from a balanced athletic stance, low leg kick stride on line, smooth load down and back. Hips rotate completely with some violence and he maintains good lower half balance. Hands stay inside, quick to the ball, fast bat, slightly uphill line drive swing, strong at contact with extension through the ball, showed a good approach working gap to gap, power present to all fields, ball really carries off his bat in the middle of the field, exit velocity was 96. Ran a 6.79 60 yard dash.

Stands around 5-foot-11/6-foot with a projectable athletic frame. O'Ferrell has a solid set of tools and the ability to play both positions up the middle. Shows nice range defensively with soft hands and above average arm strength. At the plate hits from the right side with a balanced athletic stance that starts square and finishes slightly open. Small leg lift and hands load back in rhythm and swing is short to the ball. Bat path is slightly uphill and showed gap to gap power potential. Runs really well and can stretch plays for an extra base if needed. Was one of the big offensive standouts for St. Chris on the week and sets the table for the Saints in the leadoff position.
