6-foot, 170 pounds. Bats and throws right. At plate has a tall athletic stance, short stride. Lets the ball get deep and has very quick hands to the ball for gap to gap power. Very good extension through the ball. Exit velocity was 85 mph off the tee but played faster in live round. At SS had excellent range to both sides. Quick feet. Gathers himself well, good glove to hand transfer, quick release from 3/4 arm slot at 78 mph across the diamond. Runs well. Ran a 4.10 home to first time. Solid prospect.

6-foot-4, 205 pounds. The RHP was dominant today against Team Colorado Bard. Pitching 4 innings of shut-out baseball, Hilton utilized a fastball that was consistently 87-88 mph touching 89. The University of New Mexico commit has polished up his mechanics and pounds the strike zone. Effortless to the plate mixing in a 72 mph curveball at 11/5 tilt with late break, batters didn't have a chance today. Projectable frame can easily reach low to potential mid 90's with added strength.

No. 7 ranked 2017. Thin bodied, 6-foot-3, 185-pounds .Hilton has smooth rhythm in his load an is level through the zone with good extension through ball, but at times looks to cut off his swing before full extension settling for contact. Good balance for his height with short stride and good lower half. Very rangy at SS showing good action for height. Ran a 4.81 home to first time. Came up big with 2-out bases loaded single hitting a hard line drive up the middle.

Thin bodied, 6-foot-3, 185-pound right-handed pitcher with a solid lower half and great extension to plate. Delivery is effortless and works online, excellent balance, keeps head up and eyes level throughout; slight coil at top of balance point with slight open toed landing and athletic finish. Arm action is quick and loose, works with a short stroke and high ¾ slot. Hides the ball well. Fastball has slight tail in the zone, found the zone regularly good control, occasionally misses up and arm side, ranged 78-80 mph, showed the ability to maintain velocity from the stretch. Curveball was a lot slower, and worked on 11/5 plane, showed gradual, mostly 62 mph, good control. Good feel for changeup, gradual sinking action sinking action, 65-66 mph, showed control of the pitch, deceptive arm action. Hilton showed a good three pitch mix with feel for all three and the ability to consistently pound the zone. Has mature build but fresh arm, like his projection to throw harder as he gets more innings under his belt and adds more weight to body. As a hitter Hilton has  gap to gap power backed up with an 83 mph exit velo off the tee. Hilton has smooth rhythm in his load an is level through the zone with good extension through ball, but at times looks to cut off his swing before full extension settling for contact. Good balance for his height with short stride and good lower half. Very rangy at SS showing good action for height. Threw 79 mph across the diamond with fluid motion and soft hands.  Ran a 4.81 home to first time. Very projectable at both positions.
