01/16/2015 - Under Armour All-America Pre-Season Tournament Christian performed well with consistency both offensively and defensively at the Under Armour Baseball Factory Pre-Season All America. Defensively, he got his body in a good fielding position on-time, and made plays with a sure glove in front. He was quick to release and threw on-line to his target. On the shortstop side of the bag, he was clean to exchange and quick to turn the double play. At the dish, he took aggressive hacks and flashed pull side pop. Natural rhythm and consistent timing enabled him to hit the ball with authority and extension out in front. In all - Christian will graduate this spring with the tools necessary to be successful at the next level.

05/18/2014 - College PREP - New Orleans, LA Christian continued to show his consistent ability in his most recent Baseball Factory outing. The 5'11/175 lbs prospect made plays with sure hands, efficient footwork and sound body control. He pays attention to details and always secures the ball in the mitt. His lateral range is plus and he stays in-line to throw with accuracy. Playing through the ball and getting in a stronger position to throw - using his legs - will enable higher level play. Offensively, he was quick to the ball with his barrel and maintained a line-drive swing path. Working on his timing and rhythm will increase hit ability and power potential. Overall - we look forward to tracking Christian over the next year as he prepares for the next level.

02/16/2014 - National Tryout - Lake Charles, LA Christian continues to shine on the diamond. This athletic SS shows plus range to his right and left and hustles into position behind the ground ball. He fields the ball cleanly and has a clean/quick exchange to throw. At the plate, this RH swinger shows an open stance with good rhythm. He likes the pitch on the inner 1/2 and pulls it with pop. Barrel delivery is quick to and through the zone. Christian should find success this upcoming season thanks to his talents on the diamond.

05/20/2012 - College PREP - New Orleans, LA Christian is an athletic SS that will graduate in 2015. Feet are active as he attacks groundballs through a low approach. Hands are presented out front, displaying soft / clean hands. He maintains body control as he gets rid of the baseball quickly but needs to build more arm strength and quicken foot speed to improve defensive grade. At the plate, Gradney shows an athletic setup with balance and loads well. Hands are quick, flashing bat speed through a level swing path through a direct approach. He needs to work on staying through balls more and utilize his lower half more efficiently to improve power grades. With 3 years to further develop, Christian has a lot of potential and will catch the eyes of the collegiate coaches as he continues to improve.

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).
