04/21/2013 - College PREP - Greenville, SC Austin is a thick and athletic catcher with a strong lower 1/2. Behind the plate, Austin has soft hands, quick feet, and he sits in low. He catches athletically, blocks well, and he throws with a short arm action with accuracy and carry to his target. Playing more on the balls of his feet, and loosening his body action can help catching get even better. Offensively, Austin has a square set-up, a short stride, and good barrel accuracy. He makes hard contact, he has pop in his bat, and he uses his lower 1/2 well. A better load and shorter swing will help offense rise.
