6-foot, 165-pound right-handed hitting catcher. Proportional strength throughout his frame. Saw plenty of times behind the plate for Midwest Halos. Simple setup with slight balance in the lower half, hands load into a strong hitting position, short stride to even, strong balance through contact. Bat stays level through the zone, line drive approach, untapped power potential. Works quick out of the crouch with a strong arm behind the plate. Pop times ranged between 1.97-2.09 between innings. Athletic blocker with comfortable lateral movement. A ranked, uncommitted backstop in Wisconsin’s 2021 class.
