01/15/2016 - Under Armour All-America Pre-Season Tournament Austin is a very talented athlete who is fun to watch when he steps onto the diamond. At SS, he moves fluidly from right to left around the GB. He works lightly on the balls of his feet covering a ton of ground laterally. Hands are smooth, transfer is quick/clean and throws are strong/accurate to 1B. At the plate, Austin shows an athletic setup with good balance. He has fluid rhythm to load and has quick hands that generate plus bat speed to and through the zone. He squares the ball up consistently and sprays the whole field with hard line-drives. On the mound, this RHP toes the rubber with a purpose. He pounds the zone with a FB that jumps out of his hand and onto hitters quickly - 88 mph with late run. Changeup has good run/sink - showing to be a solid swing and miss pitch. He finishes complete and fields the position well. Thompson is an exciting prospect who will garner a ton of attention from coaches/scouts with his advanced tool-set.
