12/27/2014 - Under Armour Baseball Factory Recruiting Classic Austin continues to work hard on his game. He is a coachable player who is willing to make the necessary adjustments to take his game to the next level. Defensively at 1B, he hustles into position behind the ground ball and tracks it into his mitt. He fields the ball with soft hands and gathers well. He is a big target at 1B which his fellow INF's like to throw to. Working from the ground-up will help to avoid getting the in-between hops and will benefit his growth defensively. With the bat, this RHH shows good plate discipline by not swinging at much out of the zone. Barrel is quick to and through the ball at contact as he connects and drives it. More extension with increased lower 1/2 drive will help him to tap into his power potential. On the bump, Austin works through fluid tempo with clean actions. FB shows arm side run and will get in on the RHH. Delivery is a little deceptive which will keep hitters guessing. He competes and works all pitches in or around the zone. Erickson is a versatile player who should find success on the diamond.

07/24/2014 - College PREP - Anchorage, AK Austin is a lean 1B/RHP that will graduate in 2015. Currently, he projects best at 1B for the next level. Defensive abilities are solid as he displays clean / smooth actions. Feet are active / aggressive as he displays proper footwork around the bag and plays through well with his body. Hands are soft / clean / sure as he consistently showed the ability to pick balls out of the dirt. Defensive grade will continue to improve as he increases his foot quickness. Throws are accurate but needs to build more arm strength through a long toss program. At the plate, he shows an athletic setup with rhythm. Hands are quick, flashing bat speed to and through a level swing path. He makes consistent contact, mainly to the pull side. Hitting grade will continue to improve as he works to stay inside the ball, utilizing all fields. Power numbers will continue to improve as he learns to use his lower half more. On the mound, fastball showed a range of 71-73 mph. He throws a knuckle balls that is an outstanding pitch, displaying a lot of movement with downward action. Breaking ball displays 11/5 shape with gradual break. Control is a plus as he throws strikes with all his pitches. Stock on the mound will continue to rise as he builds more arm strength through a long toss program. Austin has abilities with a lot of room to improve.

Tool Grade Scale

Our main goals with the BF "10-70" Scouting Scale are to provide the player with a realistic evaluation of his "PRESENT" abilities (what he can do today), and to provide college coaches with information they can use to identify and/or compare potential recruits.

Tools are graded for all players and pitchers, regardless of age or graduation year. However, for High School players we use only grades 20-70 (grades 10-18 do not apply), while for Middle School players we use only grades 10-52 (grades 55-70 do not apply).
