01/12/2018 - 2018 Under Armour All-America Pre-Season Tournament Dakota is a solid RHH catcher who showed well during his time at the Under Armour All-America Pre-Season Tournament. With the bat, this righty stands in well with an open stance and centered balance. He likes the pitch on the inner 1/2 and pulls it with pop. Stroke is smooth as he hits line-drives. Behind the dish, Dakota sits in well with quiet/athletic actions and tracks pitches into a soft mitt. Lateral actions are quick as he centers pitches in the dirt off of his chest. Throws to 2B are accurate with pop times still in the low 2's. Branger (2020 grad) is a skilled prospect who should find success in this only his sophomore season.
