Colin continues to show improvement in some areas and has developed his skills steadily over the years. He continues to show good arm strength on the mound throwing between 78-81 mph. His curve ball improved as well showing good action. At the plate he showed more strength and bat speed making good use out of his lower body. He needs to continue to work on his defensive abilities showing a high approach, deep glove and firm hands at the workout. Foot speed is another area to continue to work on. At this time his best position is on the mound but with hard work he may be able to do some of both at the next level.

Colin is a young player with future potential. On the mound, Colin shows a balanced delivery with an above average CH and excellent arm action. A long toss program will help to increase arm strength. At SS, Colin needs to trust his hands and ability. Currently, his hands are a little stiff when fielding ground balls. At the plate, Colin has a solid approach and good bat speed. He hits a lot of line drives and he is aggressive. Colin is still very young and has years of development ahead of him. He has ability and as he gets stronger, his tool grades will increase.
