10/16/2022 - Official College Recruiting Membership - San Antonio, TX Colten is an OF/RHP who will graduate in 2023. Medium frame athletic build with strength present and room to add throughout. Ran his 60-yard dash in 6.97 seconds. In the OF, he showed ability to cover ground in all directions and make routine plays. Showed good lateral range as he works behind/through the baseball with a high 1-hand catch. Made accurate/on-line throws into infield from a high 3/4 arm slot with an arm velocity up to 80mph. On the mound, he gathers over rubber, with a clean leg lift, and stays in his legs throughout his delivery. Picks up target early and gets a good glove tuck on his frontside. He attacks hitters with a FB that sits 75-77mph with good command, a 12/6 shaped breaking ball, and a changeup with some movement that he throws with FB arm speed. At the plate, he starts with an upright and open stance. Good rhythm to his swing and gets knob to C. Intent in his swing, with some quickness to his hands, and late bat whip. A flat barrel path with extension out front as he hit line drives into both gaps with a bat exit velocity up to 83mph. With another year of growth and development, we foresee this 2-way player having a bright future on the baseball field.

His CH sat 71-5 and with a slight adjustment to his grip, he will be able to establish more differential from the FB. At the plate, he uses the middle of the field well.

Exclusive College Recruiting Program Colten is an athletic middle of the diamond defender who has a foundation of solid baseball skills combined with performance. A 7.0 runner with a quick first step and good routes to the ball he covers ground in the OF to project as an average to above average defender with the arm to handle CF or LF. Offensively its a compact swing with a feel for the barrel generating consistent hard contact from a line drive path. His approach is geared to work the middle of the field and allow himself to function as a table setter offensively and with aggressive baserunning skills he is a threat to take an extra 90 feet at any time. The frame is lean with loose actions and athleticism and he will continue to add strength and explosion as he matures. Profiles to be an above average defender in the OF with versatility on the offensive side and enough pitchability on the mound he could provide bullpen depth at the next level, but fits best as a CF/LF table-setter profile.

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).
