Northern Illinois commit. Stock is on the rise as of late and showed why in his first game at the Kickoff Classic. Led off for Marian Catholic and took four quality at-bats, finishing 3-for-4 with a double and run scored. Quick, strong hands, natural lift in his swing, pull approach and made consistent hard contact. Doubled to deep left-center field in his third at-bat, 4.75 on the turn. Also, reached on an infield single in his final at-bat, 4.36 down the line. Instincts and aggressive on the bases. Stole two bases and is always looking to push the envelope. Natural outfield actions, fluid footwork, concise routes, gets around the baseball and plays through. Should be able to stick in center field moving forward.
