Andrew is a SS/RHP in the class of 2027 out of Prattville, AL. At SS, he displayed fluid footwork with the ability to cover ground and field the ball in a square fielding position. He presents his glove early and tracks the ball to the pocket while making clean exchanges with consistent on line throws to his target. At the plate, he uses an open stance and with an open stride. He could benefit from striding back in line to the pitcher to help stay through the baseball better at contact. He works a line drive approach and hits the ball to all fields. On the mound, he does a good job of gathering over the rubber and staying in his legs while having good direction to the plate. He finishes with his chest over his knee allowing him to get extension through his pitch. He worked a 3 pitch mix of fastball, curveball and change up. With three more years to develop, Andrew has the time and potential to further build upon his skills on the field.

Andrew improved his foot quickness as he ran his best 60 time to date. At SS, he displays smooth / athletic actions. Feet are active as he works around balls but needs to play through with momentum to his target. Glove action is clean but needs to present more out front. Range will increase as he improves foot quickness. Throws are accurate but will benefit by building more arm strength through a long toss program. At the plate, he shows a tall setup. Hands are loose and work through a level swing path. He stays inside the ball, utilizing all fields through a line drive approach. Working to get stride down in line will aid in improving hitting grades.

Andrew is a 2027 SS. He continues to show improvement on his baseball skills. His raw arm velocity topped out at 53mph which was a 3mph improvement. In the infield, he showed ability to stay in front of ball during live game action. Has a clean exchange into throwing hand with a 3/4 arm slot on his throws. At the plate, Andrew hits from a crouched and square stance. Showed good strike zone awareness as he drew 3 base on balls during games. During his round of BP, he made good contact to all fields and a bat exit velocity as high as 56mph. A long toss and J-band program will help with arm strength. With continued growth and development, we see him having opportunities to play at the high school level and possibly beyond.
