Official Scouting Report

  • SSPosition Projection

08/04/2013 - College PREP - Council Bluffs (Omaha, NE), IA Austin is a solid, tall SS that will graduate in 2015. Foot speed is solid as indicated by his 7.31 60 time. Defensive abilities are well above average as he attacks ground balls and plays through well with his body. He moves well laterally, flashing range and displays soft / sure hands as and shows big play potential in the MIF. Throws are accurate, with life and on line carry as he gets rid of the baseball quickly. At the plate, hands are quick, flashing bat speed through a level swing path. He shows a feel for the barrel with baseball jumping off the bat when centered, mainly to the pull side. Power potential is present as he displays leverage and strength in his swing. For hitting grade to continue to improve, he needs to work to keep hands inside the ball to utilize all fields. With 2 years to further develop, Austin has a lot of potential and will catch the eyes of the collegiate coaches with his baseball abilities.

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.
