Navy commit, currently ranked No. 41 in Illinois. Strong, physical 6-foot-2 200-pound frame. Superior strength throughout frame. Offensively is a catalyst for the Porters hitting in their three-hole. Right-handed hitter, open athletic stance. Features a big leg-kick that helps to keep him in rhythm and on time. Confident and mature presence in the box. Features advanced bat strength combined with a feel to hit. Was on the barrel with authority in two of his four at-bats. Singled hard to right-field and then followed up with a laser into the left-center field gap for extra bases. Also a catcher, Izquierdo spent this game at first base. Frame fits the first base mold at the next level; big target with soft hands. Routinely showed the ability to pick the baseball and handle tough hops. Fluid feet for his size, feel around the bag. One of the top right-handed power bats in the Illinois’ 2022 class.
