Carson is an athletic, SS/RHP who will graduate in 2022. Defensively at SS, he hustles well and tries to work into a square fielding position on GB's. He comes up with a clean exchange and makes accurate throws to his target. On the mound, this RHP delivers a 3-pitch mix from a 3/4 arm slot. He comes right at hitters and fills up the zone with strikes. With the stick, Carson displays an athletic setup.
