11/22/2020 - Official College Recruiting Membership - Gambrills, MD Dakota is a pure catch and throw backstop who also will make an impact with the bat. Behind the dish, he presents a soft/sure mitt showing great pocket awareness sticking pitches. Quick lateral movements allow him to center/deaden pitches in the dirt off of a soft chest. Pop times showed in the 2.00 range with accuracy / carry (83 mph velocity) on his throws. Offensively, he continues to shine with well above average hitting abilities with outstanding power potential. He has athletic/smooth actions with fluid rhythm to load. He gets good hand separation and delivers the barrel with leverage, resulting in a barrel explosion (90 mph exit velocity) with the ball screaming off of his barrel. Dakota has the makings of a special type player and will get looks from the collegiate coaches with his baseball abilities.
