PITCHING:  I was also able to see him throw on back to back days last weekend at two different college prospect camps. The delivery is from the stretch and he gathers up top with a high kick to a compact tucked delivery and keeps his front side closed. He drives down the mound with the front side closed and uses a late shoulder turn out front to create late reads by hitters and his pitches all

have deception. A consistent K thrower that pitches like Ted Lilly with a FB 81-85 and although he lacks velocity, he makes up for it with K pounding ability and abv avg command of all his pitches. He can locate the FB to all four quadrants as well as land the CB and CH and will mix it up by pitching different hitters each time. My pick to click at the next level and I believe he can get hitters out at a mid major D1 or a top shelf JC. Also reminds me of a former MLB LHP with the Angels and national JC pitcher of the year (Central Arizona) back in the late 2000’s. 

HITTING: I wouldn’t take the bat from him just yet with his pitching prowess as he is also a good HS hitter that should fare well at the next level. You’re getting two players for one with Johnson. A CF that can play all 3 OF spots and reads balls off the bat as if each was his natural position. He is an anomaly in that he throws LH and hits RH! He can run down balls to the gap and with a quick read off the bat and 1st step, although not a runner, he can close on balls and cover ground. The bat is a bit inconsistent when it comes to pitchers who can really mix and match, but he grinds out AB’s and let his powerful Olympus squad in most hitting categories in the 2 spot in the lineup. 




Med frame and solidly built ‘22 LHP with a simple clean delivery. A classic north/south approach and steps back at a 45 degree angle and gathers with a compact flexible NWU high kick and coils well up top and breaks his hands over the rubber. He lands on his toe and slightly closes with the toe on foot strike. The arm is a medium to full circle arc with a HTQ arm stroke and gets enough ext. out front, yet is somewhat upright. Would like to see him bend his back out front and get to an ideal flat back to finish. This would asd another couple of MPH to the FB 79-82 that he throws for K’s and has angle and downhill plane. The CB 70-72 has some finish and TQ tilt with med and full depth at times. The CH also 70-72 is ideal with another foot added to the FB. Throws K’s with all 3 and has had success pitching for Mountain West and the Mets Scout Team ‘22 in AZ in the fall. With 2 years of HS remaining it wouldn’t surprise me to see him take another step with the FB and he knows how to pitch. 


A two way talent, with the rare trait of hitting RH’ed and throwing LH’ed. Has been a performer throughout with Team Utah ‘22 in the summer/falls ove the past couple of years, however has had success as both a pitcher and hitter, but the metrics and eye test, are trending in the direction of being a hitter, but as a two way player and the ability to get outs, despite limited stuff, he shows value for the right college fit. With the bat, his EV jumped exponentially in the past 3 months, from 84 mph to 93 and his EV avg from 78.5 to 89.04! The Blast data was good, as he was 2nd in Rotational Acceleration at 23.3 and in overall score of 75 on the 20-80 scale. This means he really fires his lower ½ and core through the baseball, and thus explaining his big jumpin exit velocity. But he also passes the eye test offensively and performs with these traits and has a feel to play the game. Colleges need to jump on this kid. Diamond in the Rough, with offensive upside and an arm out of the pen for the right college fit!
