Brennan is an aggressive, instinctive player with tremendous baserunning ability. Offensively, he is direct with his hands and gets the barrel around to make square contact with an on-plane swing path. While he uses his lower half partially, there is more power that can be tapped into. Defensively, the shortstop has good lateral range and the arm strength to make plays in the 6 hole. His backhand footwork is clean/fluid and he has a quick/clean exchange with his double-play feeds. Brennan should have a solid year as a junior and look to be an impact guy come fall of his freshman year.

Arm strength is outstanding with throws displaying life, accuracy, and on line carry across the diamond. At the plate, Brennan continues to shine through an athletic setup. Hands are quick, flashing bat speed through a level swing path. Power numbers will continue to increase as he learns to use his lower half more through the swing. At the event, he was 6 for 9 with a 2B and once on bases he utilizes his quick feet to put pressure on defenses. Mental makeup is a plus as he is aggressive and plays hard with a positive attitude.
