Scouting Report

12/21/21

Flexibility behind the plate with plenty of athleticism.  Shows a quick release and good arm strength.  Switch hitter, showed true switch hitting ability with a compact stroke and plenty of bat speed and strength.  This Gamecock commit helped lead AC Flora to a state championship last year and is looking to do the same this year.
