LATEST PG SHOWCASE REPORT
2020 PG Underclass All American Games  
RJ Austin is a 2022 SS/RHP/UT with a 5-11 185 lb. frame from Atlanta, GA who attends Pace Academy. Medium athletic build with good present strength and room for more. Very quick twitch athlete, 6.55 runner in the sixty with equally quick hands, plus athleticism. Right handed hitter, hits from a narrow stance with a coiled load and a high hand start, torqued swing with fast hands and plenty of lower half involvement, swing a bit timing intensive, plus bat speed and really showed his power in games, blasted pull side home runs both Saturday and Sunday. Primary middle infielder but can play all over the field defensively, carries his weight into his throws both in the infield and outfield and shows his arm strength, quick and active feet, throws easy with carry. Also pitched, rotational delivery with a 3/4's arm slot, stiff is better the higher he gets at release. Fastball topped out at 91 mph, best breaking balls at the highest velocities. Good student, verbal commitment to Vanderbilt. Named to the PG All-American Underclass Games Top Prospect List.
