10/20/18 - 2018 WWBA World Championship co-MVP. Florida commit. 6-2. 205-pounds, athletic frame physical lower half. Was an offensive catalyst, top of the order bat for the Burn. Consistently took quality at-bats throughout the weekend, putting the ball in play with hard contact. Showed feel and the ability to make adjustments mid at-bat. Takes a gap-to-gap approach, had awareness to take shorter approaches when the situation dictated. Defensively, moved well at shortstop, plenty of arm strength to stick on the left-side, soft hands, body control on run throughs, made a number of highlight throws. Went 7-for-16 with ne home run, six RBI, and five walks.

10/12/18 - Florida commit. 6-foot-2, 205-pound right-handed infielder, athletic frame, strong lower half. Continues to physically mature, increasing his power abilities at the plate. Presently produced more line drive contact in batting practice, driving balls into the gaps, with continued development can become an above average power hitter. Barrel path has lengthened out, added a more pronounced backward hand load, still gets to contact quickly with athletic hands/wrists, some natural loft. The offensively tools play in game, where he has an advanced and simple approach. Defensively, continues to trend up at third base, short, athletic arm action, utilizes multiple angles, more than enough arm strength to stick, showed good body control on run through. Ran a 6.82 60. Overall, he has multiple above average tools and will a above average hit/power combo and be an above average defender at the next level. 


07/13/17- Committed to the University of Florida.

01/21/17- Rice commit. The 6-foot, 165-pound looks to be bigger and stronger with a good frame. With a triple in the game all of the tools consistently translate into the game. The right handed hitting infielder has a  short , compact swing and set up is balanced and everything works together.  Ball jumps off the bat to all fields. He showed a quality short path in both batting practice and the game and projects to make a big jump in power as he fills out. He showed very sounds defensive actions and projects to be able to be an above average defensive third baseman. The tools currently play at a high level and showed that he can project to be a potential draft pick as well.

01/15/17-  Rice recruit. Currently ranked No. 23 in the Florida 2019 Class, No. 86 Overall. Stands at 6-foot, 165 pounds with a strong, athletic build and a good lower half. At third base he showed good actions, lateral quickness, and fielded the ball under control with confidence. Charges the slow rollers with aggressiveness. Throws were accurate to the bag with carry as he topped out at 85 mph across the diamond. At the plate he has a slightly open stance with a high hand set and a quick, short swing. Displayed the ability to use all of the plate. Made consistent contact and showed gap to gap power. Ran a 6.84 for his 60 yard dash time. High follow as he continues to mature.

9/26/16- Committed to Rice University.

9/24/16 - Committing to Rice shortly after the event, he impressed both offensively and defensively all weekend. He has and advanced approach and above average bat speed for the class. He is an above average defender at third and will project to be a middle of the order bat. 

8/13/16- 6-foot, 165 pounds with an athletic, strong build. Solid defender with soft hands.
