Scouting Report: Outfielder with a well-filled out frame. Two-sport star in high school who was committed to play both football and baseball at Texas A&M. Solid-average speed, but doesn’t get out of the box well. Plus power potential, but rough swing mechanics. Needs to work on using his lower body and hitting with more top hand. Presently building his approach from the ground up. Tends to jump at balls and can be easily fooled. Will take time to close the gap between opposing pitchers to make consistent contact, but has high offensive potential, as he becomes more of a finished product. Raw defensively, probably best suited for left field, but has a solid arm. Needs work in the outfield.
