01/12/2020 - College PREP - Waipahu (Honolulu), HI Branson is a thin, 2-way player who will graduate in 2023. At 3B, Branson has a presentable glove, efficient footwork to the ball, and he centers it well on his body. He uses 2 hands, fields squarely, and his exchange is clean with a consistent arm across the diamond. Looser actions and added arm strength will help abilities at 3B improve. In the OF, Branson has a firm/presentable glove, efficient footwork, and he fields aggressively. He makes plays athletically, gathers well, and throws with momentum from a short arm action to his cut off man. OF skills can get better with added foot speed and arm strength. At the plate, Branson has an open stance, a square stride, and good balance. He has some bat speed, he can spray to all fields, and he uses his lower body. Hitting grades can spike with better rhythm, a shorter swing path, and more extension through the ball.
