Solid kid at 6-2, 200 lbs. He’s a Perfect Game 3rd Team Underclassmen. Moved to Missouri City from Pennsylvania and was originally committed to Liberty before the move.

6/14/17 Toolsy 6-foot-2, 190-pound athlete. Right-handed hitter starts from an open, upright stance and strides slightly closed. Has bat speed and swings with intent (92 mph exit velocity), although path can get long, as he primarily employs a grip-it-and-rip-it approach in the box. Did show an ability to barrel the baseball to both sides of the field during his BP round. Long strides produced a 6.76 60-yard dash and 4.40 in-game home-to-1B time. Exhibited athletic actions in the outfield with a slingshot arm action that produced 93 mph arm strength. Raw on the mound, his fastball was scattershot at 83-85, while he slows his tempo on his mid-70s change-up. Doesn’t take full advantage of his size and potential downhill angle, collapsing his lower half and pushing the ball to the plate with a low elbow.

Looks like he moved to HOU TX from PA after this past school year.

I thought he had signed with us?

Baseball doesn’t really have the hard and fast rules that football and basketball do when it comes to signing. If a kid wants to go somewhere else, they pretty much can since scholarships don’t cover every player.

Baseball recruiting is nuts, can only imagine what football and basketball is like. It’s amazing how many folks think Junior is getting a full ride on baseball
