Will Harding: OF/OF, (2022) Walsh Jesuit, OH. 6-foot-3, 210-pound physical frame. At the plate, Harding's 97 mph exit velocity ranks him 2nd at the event. Started in an athletic open stance with a smooth load, then used a controlled stride. Bat speed is explosive, displays an upward swing plane and high finish. Athletic from the outfield, he displayed a position velocity of 85 mph; had a quick exchange, soft hands, and athletic footwork. Movements laterally were athletic and he fields the ball out front. Had a high ¾ slot and a quick arm action. Showed off his speed at the event, running a swift 6.65 60-yard dash.

Offensive Projection: Run producer.
Max BP Exit Velocity: 96mph.
Max BP Distance: 312ft.
Field: Good tempo with smoother actions and serviceable ball skills. Continues to grow as a defender.

Defensive Projection: TBD.

2/9/20 Position Player
Hit: At the plate Harding shows a simple, clean stroke. He keeps good balance and posture throughout the swing and shows an on plane bat path. 
Power: 91 mph exit velocity.
Offensive Projection: Good raw power for a 2022. Swing works. Should add more power as he matures physically.
Field: In the field he plays through the ball fairly well with decent instincts and footwork. Good raw physical tools.
Throw: 80 mph from the outfield.
Defensive Projection: Corner OF

7/16/19

Body Type: Looks the part physically. 6-foot-2, 195-pound physical, athletic frame.
Swing Mechanics: Righty swinger that uses a simple, repeatable load that creates balance.
Hit: Uber physical stroke that ran into contact often in BP. Ball flew off his bat. The loudest BP we saw in the group. Backspun the baseball to both gaps. Very impressive round, showcasing the ability to generate effortless pop.
Power: 97.7 mph off the bat in BP. Raw power is apparent.
Offensive Projection: Run Producer.
Run: 6.99 60-yard dash.
Field: Plays with good tempo in the outfield. Ball skills are on par for class, showing a two-handed play through.
Throw: Over the top right-hander with above average strength for class. Ball comes out well. 83 mph to home plate.
Defensive Projection: Corner Outfield.
Additional Comments: Colleges will be drawn to the physical tools. Ideal frame, sub 7.0 runner, and he took one of the loudest BPs we’ve seen all summer.

6/03/19

Body Type:  6-foot-2, 195-pound thin and athletic frame.
Swing Mechanics:  Tall and simple load into lower half.
Hit:  Raw swing that produces a lot of speed. Natural tools are obvious. Does a lot of things well offensively that you can’t teach. 
Power:  Pop is there for sure.  Just needs to continue to develop.
Offensive Projection:  TBD. 
Field: Fluid actions too while slowing momentum before feilding to ensure ball security. Two-handed play through with average ball skills. 
Throw: Above average strength for class. 
Defensive Projection: Slight lean to corner outfield but wouldn’t count out CF. 

2/02/19

Body Type: 6-foot-2 190-pound prospect. 
Swing Mechanics: Has a somewhat longer swing and casts the barrel a little bit while still being on plane with the pitch. Overall still a decent bat path to the ball and he stays balanced throughout his swing. 
Hit: Good bat to ball ability and barrel control, especially considering he somewhat casts his barrel and puts himself in a less than optimal position to start his swing. 
Power: 85 mph exit velocity
Offensive Projection: Young prospect who will grow into his body and add strength to his somewhat already developed frame. Would seem to be a guy has a lot of power potential down the road as he matures. 
Run: 6.94 60 yard dash
Field: In the outfield he plays through the ball well with decent footwork and shows good carry on his throws. Could improve how he attacks the ball. 
Defensive Projection: Projects as a corner outfield type presently but as he matures and adds strength his speed could improve making him a potential option to plug into all 3 outfield spots.

8/01/18

Passes the look test with flying colors, offering some of the more impressive strength/speed combination in his class. Swings it from the right side with a middle of the lineup look to him. Ball jumps and he can drive the ball to the opposite field with authority. Defensively, he has a corner frame with center field athleticism. High upside guy.

7/10/18

6-foot-2, 185-pound athlete that is advanced tools and build wise. Impressive combination of strength and speed, running a sub 7.0 and showed a 91 mph exit velocity. Frame points to the corners in the outfield but with his athleticism don’t rule out centerfield just yet. At the plate he drove the ball with authority and swing showed up in game.

60-yard dash: 6.95
Infield Velocity: 77
Outfield Velocity: 81
Exit Velocity: 91

5/04/18

One of the most impressive frames of the weekend and has a chance to be a beast physically. At the plate, he has a closed stance and has a high leg kick. He doesn’t really have a stride, just picks his front foot up and then back down. His initiate a slight uphill barrel path with obvious intent through the zone Doesn’t get cheated up there. Surprisingly showed little swing and miss with his violent swing. Sprayed line drives in multiple ABs and one would assume there is power potential in there. On the mound, he's closed off and starts tall. Has a high leg kick that starts slow, and then the ball explodes out. His fastball was straight but heavy at 72-75 mph. Curveball was in/out of the zone but was a solid pitch stuff wise, showing late/sharp action. Definite follow as a two-way prospect.
