01/14/2011 - Under Armour Pre-Season All-America - 2011
Bencid showed improvements in his game during the Pre-Season All-America. He has a solid / athletic frame behind the dish, has quick feet, and his hands are soft. Allan has fluid movements, a quick exchange, and he throws with accuracy to his target. At the plate, Allan has a quiet set-up, good balance, and good bat speed. He has a short swing, direct hands to the ball, and he finishes well with his bottom hand. With minor improvements Alan can get looks from colleges in need of a solid catcher.

Allan is a solid, athletic Catcher with a good set of skills. Behind the plate, Allan has quick feet, playable hands, and a good exchange. He blocks and receives the ball well, and is inline when throwing out runners. His pop times range from 1.97 to 2.10. Defensive abilities can get better if Allan can avoid standing up when throwing, and improve his carry to his target. At the plate, Allan has good balance, bat speed, and barrel accuracy. He has a level swing, a line drive approach, and he can work the ball to all fields. Allan will need to get his front foot down sooner, and have more direct hands to the ball in order for offensive numbers to further improve.
