Will is a talented 2-way prospect who continues to impress every time we see him. This athletic MIF has a ton of speed - running a 60 yard dash in a blazing 6.81. This speed shows in his defensive actions as well as on the base paths. Defensively, he has active prep and works fluidly right to left through the GB. Hands are presented out in front and soft as he funnels smoothly. Transfer is quick with zip & accuracy on his throws. With the bat, this righty maintains a tall/balanced setup with active hands to load. Swing is short/compact to and through the zone as he connects and barrels the ball up with some pop (exit velo = 82 mph). He battled in game AB's and puts the barrel on the ball consistently, proving to be a tough out. On the mound, this RHP pounds the zone with strikes and repeats his delivery well. FB tops out at 75 mph as he can hit his spots. Breaking ball shows 11/5 shape with some tight spin. He attacks hitters and give his defense a chance.

Will is an athletic and talented 2-way prospect. At SS, Will is on time with his prep step, presents a low/early glove, and has a good first step to the ball. He creates good angles to the ball and has range to both sides of the glove. He has a clean exchange, good footwork, and can throw from multiple arm angles. At the plate, Will starts in a squared stance, has a simple load, and gets to balance at contact. He keeps the barrel on plane, attacks the inside part of the ball, and rotates his core to the ball. He is a line drive hitter and makes consistent contact through the middle part of the field. On the bump, Will gathers over the rubber, separates on time, and keeps his eyes on his target. He throws his fastball for strikes and has a tight spin on his curveball. He'll continue to improve with experience and we hope to see his progress in the future.
