12/27/2011 - Under Armour Recruiting Classic - 2011
This week in Arizona, Manship displayed that he can create good angles and has plenty of carry on his throws. His defensive abilities should continue to develop as he learns to cut down his number of steps before releasing his throw. At the plate, he has good rhythm and his hands produce quality bat speed. His offensive abilities should continue to improve as he learns to create consistent extension through contact. Manship displayed a coachable attitude and is a good teammate on the field.

Asa is an athletic OF with a strong lower 1/2. In the OF, Asa has good body control, soft hands, and fluid feet. He covers ground well, takes good angles to the ball, and he picks out the right hops. Asa fields in a square position, his exchange is clean, and he throws with a loose arm action with consistency and accuracy to his target. OF skills can improve if Asa can avoid rushing and play more through the ball. At the plate, Asa has a square set-up, a proper load, and a short stride. He has good balance, a direct barrel to the ball, and he makes consistent contact. Asa is short to the ball, he swings in good rhythm, and he gets his lower 1/2 though. If Asa can improve his load and add bat speed, we can see a spike in offensive numbers.
