Scouting Report (May 28, 2020)

Small build, packs a punch, good musculature and decent athleticism overall with good foot speed. Exceptional foot work defensively; very strong 2B, possible future at SS or 3B in short stints too; utility man if not everyday 2B at next level. Strong arm for the position, good lateral range and footwork, soft hands with feel up the middle to back hand, etc. Steadily improved defensively in two years, will kick a routine ball every now and then (concentration or focus issue?) but athletic enough to make tough plays. Bat plays; punchy line drive hitter, competes well against velo and battles against best arms in OEC. Swing can get long at times, some swing and miss up in the zone when he chases, but better approach and results down in zone when he stays within himself. Productive bat, unlikely to be lead-off guy or top-end bat at next level but should settle in as nice bottom-of-the-order addition with everyday chops.

Future Projection

Everyday 2B at mid-level program likely; utility INF future possible depending on roster construction and need. Maybe some D1 chops at right small school program but probably a far better D2 (or NAIA?) fit in time as he goes; tools likely play better at that level with more of a handle offensively in general. Solid overall ballpayer; really liked watching him the last two years; not a star but realistic chance to be a reliable, productive four-year guy. Quiet, motivated, hard worker; like the way he goes about his business. Solid recruit.
