ImpactProspects.com reports: "Exciting player with unlimited potential. One of the best we’ve seen. Although he didn’t list himself as a pitcher. He hit 88 MPH with a fastball that had great movement. Sharp curve ball and great change up. Ran a 6.92 60 yd and is a smart base runner. Silky smooth at SS/2B with a gun for an arm. Great bat showing polished mechanics and quick hands. Makes solid contact with good power. Big RBI producer. Already being heavily recruited by big time programs. Unlimited future!"
