Right handed hitter, still start with the bat, strong hands generate good bat speed, swing is a bit rotational but keeps it short due to his strength, aggressive swing, barrels up well, solid line drive contact, shows some lift at times and can drive the gaps. Good student, verbal commitment to Mississippi.
