03/18/2012 - College PREP - Plainview (Lubbock), TX Austen is an athletic, young outfielder that will graduate in 2014. Defensively, he shows the ability to take proper angles, he has soft hands, and a quick exchange to throw. He stays behind the fly ball well gathering momentum while making accurate throws to his target with good carry. He has fluid actions and a quick first step. At times he is in a hurry to throw which causes his mechanics to break down. At the plate, he shows a square stance with good balance and quick hands through the zone. He makes good use of his lower half and makes hard contact to where the ball is pitched. He gets great extension through the ball showing gap-to-gap power. He needs a better pre-pitch load which will help relax his upper body and help with better rhythm. Austin ran well in the sixty and shows good athleticism in all areas. He is a definite follow in the years to come.
