01/13/2023 - 2023 Baseball Factory Pre-Season All-America Tournament Austin is an athletic SS who showed as a prospect at the Pre-Season All American Tournament. At SS, defensive abilities are well above average as he displays smooth / fluid actions. Feet are active as he attacks ball and plays through with his body. Hands are firm and presents well out front. Throws are accurate with carry (81 mph velocity) but will benefit by building more arm strength through a long toss program. At the plate, hitting / power potential is solid through an athletic setup. Hands are quick generating bat speed to and through a short / direct / level swing path, creating extension. He has strength in his swing (80 mph exit velocity) with gap-to-gap pop. Lower half works well through the swing with an aggressive hip turn. With 2 years to further develop, Austin has a lot of potential and will get looks from the collegiate coaches as he continues to progress his game.
