The Duke commit featured advanced feel for an athletic and physical 6-foot, 170-pound frame with fluidity in his movements. The left-handed hitter begins with a balanced, even stance utilizing a leg-hang to initiate an easy, slightly uphill barrel path into the hitting zone. Showcased athleticism in the lower half with fluidity in the hips allowing for repeatable extension through the ball. Displayed a gap to gap approach during batting practice with the ability to demonstrate present pull-side juice and natural pull-side lift when thrown on the inner half. Featured advanced barrel control, consistently being on time with the baseball in the hitting zone. Recorded a 6.66 60-yard dash showing off the above-average athleticism he possesses in his actions. The primary shortstop flashed advanced footwork with a low center of gravity and quick, soft hands playing through the baseball. Took advantageous routes to the ball with feel for getting around the ball on the backhand side. A solid first step created ability to go get the slow roller, making throws from different arm angles with regularity. Notched an accurate 86 mph arm-strength across the diamond out of a fluid, high ¾ arm-slot and should stick on the left-side at the next level.

Young just has the look of a hitter. The 5-foot-10, 155-pound infielder found consistent barrels and showed the ability to cover the entire plate while using the whole field to spray line drives. A left-handed hitter, Young sets up crouched, rocking his weight back with a toe tap before striding out. His hands load into a power position before quickly working the barrel through the zone on a flat path, and culminating in a loose, two-handed finish. He gets excellent use out of his lower-half, and is aggressive with each swing while remaining balanced. His barrel stays in the zone for an impressive amount of time, and he looks like he may have a chance to hit at a very high level. Athletic with some quickness, Young is confident in the field, and will likely have college recruiters following him closely the next few years.
