Connor is a very talented 2019 shortstop prospect with a complete all-around game. At the plate he has a balanced, repeatable stroke that allows him to find the barrel consistently. While his set-up and pre-pitch approach are very quiet, when he fires to the ball his quick hands work well and generate excellent bat speed. He went 2-4 with a walk at the UAAAPS Tournament in Arizona with several hard hit balls. In addition, as soon as he got on base he looked to use his speed and instincts to pressure the defense, stealing several bases. Defensively, Connor has natural actions, a good internal clock and a feel for picking his hop. His hands are sure with an efficient exchange and release, and he finishes plays with a strong, accurate arm. Committed to Ole Miss, Connor is an intriguing prospect as a player who can impact the game in many ways while playing a premium defensive position.
