01/12/2018 - 2018 Under Armour All-America Pre-Season Tournament Austin is cementing himself as a game changer at the SS position. This Wichita State commit and 2019 grad continues to impress. A compact infielder, he has plus range and unreal hands. His glove works quick and he is one of the best to the backhand side that we had at the event. He turns double plays very well and works extremely well on the run. He mixes his arm slots so he can effectively make every type of play. At the plate, he works with a balanced approach, has very quick hands and drives the ball to all fields. Austin has great bat control and will be an asset to any lineup moving forward.

His lower half works well to generate bat speed and his fluid swing results in lots of square contact with pop to the pull side.

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.
