Austin is an athletic 2016 graduate who continues to impress at 2 positons. In the outfield, he shows solid range, taking efficient routes to fly balls and showing a proficiency for fielding ground balls, charging and working through. At shortstop, he shows similar qualities, working under and through the ball to get into a positon to throw. Working to improve arm accuracy/strength through long toss, while focusing on proper mechnaics will help him in a big way. At the plate, he approaches with a square setup, still rhythm and a quick stride, which results in his frequent opposite field line drives. A promising prospect, Austin can play multiple roles in a collegiate program.
