Scouting Report

 

10/28/18 (PBR Mid-Atlantic ProCase) - 6-foot-5, 220-pound switch-hitter is a Duke commit. Top performer offensively at the event. Starts his swing from both sides of the plate from a slightly open stance and uses a leg-hang stride to get started. Shows more whip and power potential from the left side while he made consistent loud contact from the right side as well. Registered an 87 mph bat exit velocity from the left side while swinging wood and ran a 6.86 60-yard dash. Showcased capable actions defensively at the hot corner with 84 mph arm strength, but a move to first base or to a corner outfield spot is likely at the next level.

 

 

6/14/18 (Super 16 Tournament) - It's hard to find a more impressive physical specimen in the 2020 class than the 6-foot-5, 220-pound Storm who looks like he could be an elite tight-end prospect based on his size and athleticism. A Duke recruit, Storm is athletic, especially given his big, strong frame, and uses his strength well from both sides of the plate. While he looks more natural from the left side, producing hard contact from gap to gap with lag in the barrel, his right-handed swing is not far behind, and he showcases a fluent load with a flat path. Likely a first baseman moving forward, Storm looks the part of a middle of the order bat with power potential from both sides of the plate.

 

 

7/20/16 Standing 6-foot-3 and 195-pounds Storm looks the part of a high school senior rather than an uncderclassman yet to have stepped onto a high school campus. The switch-hitter has some length to his swing from both sides of the plate with more polished swing mechanics as a left-handed hitter. The rising freshman only had one hit in five plate appearances over two days but it was a memorable one. In his second at bat of day one Storm turned on an inside fastball and drove a home run over the left field wall.

Storm showcased capable defensive actions with 77 mph arm strength during defensive evaluations. With his size an eventual move across the diamond to first base is likely.
