  Scouting Report & Links      
         
  Physical Description: Short, stocky frame. Sturdy lower half, minimal remaining projection. Quick-twitch athlete.

Hit: Starts upright and slightly open with his hands high. Very brief leg lift timing device. Short, compact swing. Very direct to the ball. Solid feel for hit and knowledge of the strike zone. Advanced bat-to-ball skills. Level swing path leads to a lot of line drives. Works counts and does not expand the zone. Good approach, knows what type of player he is and does not try to do too much.

Power: Swing is more designed for line drives in the gap so he can use his speed. Has shown some pull power on occasion.

Run: Plus-plus speed.

Field: Solid instincts and takes efficient routes. Speed allows him to cover plenty of ground. Above-average range. Potential plus defender.

Arm: Fringe-average arm strength.
  Career Notes: Highly regarded prospect coming out off Glenn High School. Three-sport athlete and was a member of the USA Baseball 18U team as a junior. Comes from an athletic family. His late father played baseball in college and brother and uncle played football. Originally drafted by the Cubs in the 28th round of the 2017 draft. Missed most of the 2018 and 2019 due to several injuries. Named to the ACC Academic Honor Roll three times.

Summation: Has the speed and defensive profile you look for, but future potential will be determined by how much he hits. Has a knack for getting on base and solid feel at the plate. Strong makeup and work ethic. Strong leadership skills, leaves it all on the field night after night. Type of person every organization strives to have.

Note: This page will be updated with a complete scouting report after the scouting team has seen the player in person.
