SoCal ProCase:

Body: 6 foot, 170 pounds. Lean athletic frame, with some present strength with room to continue to get bigger and stronger 

Hit: LHH- In the box, Austin has a very relaxed setup. With his hands and bat calmly resting on his shoulder, he starts his load with a simple and repeatable toe tap, and once he has shifted his weight back onto his back leg, his hands gain separation and explode to the baseball. His bat path is very short, direct, and level. Overn's bat speed is already next level averaging 73.85 mph via Blast, when at the major league level we’re seeing an average of 70.3 in the entire 2019 season. 

Power: With Overn's above average bat speed and the natural lift that he creates with his hand path, the pullside power is present during his batting practice. Typically this has not been his strongest tool, but last year in the lead off spot he still hit a respectable three longballs. However, Overn’s max exit velocity on the day was 98.23, nearly mph higher than the 93.51 he posted just before his junior season. Hopefully we can see that trend continue for him as he tries to carry that into his senior campaign. 

Field: Overn’s actions in the outfield can be described as nothing but natural. All of his motions and footwork are quick yet fluid. When fielding the ball he approaches calmly and under control and has a clean funnel from glove to hand. The range in center field is next level and the athleticism really comes out to play when he is going and getting fly balls out there. 

Arm: Getting as high as 87 mph from the outfield, Overn has a very quick and compact arm action that has shown to be consistently accurate. He is very good at getting behind the baseball and working through it in order to get the most out of each of his throws. 

Run: Overn shined during the 60-yard dash blowing everyone out of the water when he posted a 6.17 laser-time. He explodes out of his stance and instantly shifts into a gear that not many others possess. His arm action is slightly cross body, which should only get scouts more excited about the base stealing potential once his technique gets cleaned up. 

Summary: Overn is simply the kind of athlete that any coach would dream to have setting the table for your lineup and roaming out in center field. The future Trojan is dripping with tools that can impact a game at any level, and the speed alone is game changing. Due to his next level speed and range, there is no doubt that he can stick in centerfield when he makes the transition to college ball, but was more than willing to take reps in left field so another player could get their own reps in center, where he looked every bit as comfortable as he did in center. It seems Overn is taking strides in terms of packing on strength and if that trend continues then this is a ballplayer that you're going to want to keep an eye on going into the 2022 season.

The recent USC commit was the seventh player to run the 60 and made sure to make his presence felt from the top by running a laser timed 6.55 before taking to the hitting wheel showing his present and projectable power. Started off with live BP where he peppered the gap to the pull side while showing the ability to work middle. Generates bat speed with very fast hands and a simple toe tap stride into the ball. Registered an 86 MPH exit velo which backed up what he showed in BP. The frame is long at 5-foot-11 and lean at 155-pounds, but there is present strength in the shoulders and down through the arms. With a high waist and some present lower half strength the projection for future growth/strength gains is obvious. Defensively he’s athletic and fluid getting to and working through the ball. Arrives under control and ready to get rid of the ball which he does cleanly and with present arm strength - 84 mph to home plate.
