Official Scouting Report

  • 5Class Rating
  • C/SSPosition Projection

12/27/2018 - Under Armour Baseball Factory Recruiting Classic (Ages 14-18) Austin is a strong and athletic 2019 catching prospect that is a solid team player. Behind the dish, Austin starts in an athletic secondary and a has a balanced primary stance. He works behind the ball and has strong hands when receiving. He has a clean exchange and a loose arm action when throwing. When blocking he needs to continue to lead with his glove and try to control balls with his chest. Improving hip mobility will allow him to have more fluidity when blocking laterally as well. At the plate, Austin is a talented switch hitter. From both sides he starts in an athletic stance, loads his hands back into the drive position, and looks to be a situational hitter. From the right side he attacks the inside part of the ball, rotates his hips, and keeps his head down at contact. From the left side he stays balanced through contact and attacks the inside part of the ball as well. Continuing to create backside drive with his lower half will allow him to drive the ball more consistently. Austin was a pleasure to work with and we hope to see his progress in the future.

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 (tools), 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, using the scale below. However, grades 10-18 are not available for use with High School players (ages 14-18), while grades 55-70 are not available for use with Pre High School players (ages 12-14). These instances are marked as "--- N/A ---" in the "Description" fields below.
