07/18/2022 - Official College Recruiting Membership - Kannapolis (Charlotte), NC Brian continues to show as a top prospect on the diamond with improvements in his baseball abilities. He did show on the mound for the first time at the event. Behind the plate, pop times have improved as he threw his lowest time to date at 2.00 with accuracy and carry (84 mph velocity) on his throws. He utilizes his body through the blocking process, centering balls well out front. Receiving / blocking skills show as quality tools that will play well at the next level. At the plate, he continues to shine through a squared setup. Hands are quick )90 mph exit velocity) and work through an aggressive swing path. He stays inside the ball, utilizing all fields with gap to gap pop. Power will increase as he utilizes his lower half more efficiently. On the mound, fastball shows a range of 80-83 mph on a downhill plane. Breaking ball displays 11/5 shape with gradual break. He maintains arm speed on his changeup with arm side run. Control is well above average as he throws strikes with all his pitches.

01/14/2022 - 2022 Baseball Factory Pre-Season All-America Tournament (FL) Brian showed upgrades in all areas of his game during his time at the Pre-Season AA in Florida. He is a solid, athletic catcher with a high ceiling. Behind the plate, Brian showed quick feet, good flexion, and he sits in athletically.

08/15/2021 - All-In Membership - Kannapolis (Charlotte), NC Brian is an athletic C/OF who is a prospect on the diamond. Behind the dish, he presents a soft/sure mitt showing great pocket awareness sticking pitches. He uses his body through the blocking process, centering balls well out front. Receiving / blocking skills show as quality tools that will play well. Pop times showed in 2.07 range with accuracy and carry (81 mph velocity) on his throws. Times will continue to drop as he builds more arm strength through a long toss. In the OF, he takes proper routes / angles in tracking down balls. He works to get behind balls but needs to play through with momentum to his target. He utilizes his foot quickness (7.35 60 time) in displaying range in the OF. At the plate, he continues to shine, displaying well above average hitting / power through a squared setup. Hands are quick (86 mph exit velocity) and work through an aggressive swing path. He stays inside the ball, utilizing all fields and has strength in his swing with gap to gap pop. Lower half works well through the swing and shows a feel for the barrel. With 2 years to further develop, Brian has potential and will get looks from the collegiate coaches as he continues to progress his game.

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 (what he can do today), 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. However, for High School players we use only grades 20-70 (grades 10-18 do not apply), while for Middle School players we use only grades 10-52 (grades 55-70 do not apply).
