11/18/2018 - College PREP - Montgomery, AL Deacon is a thin and athletic 2021 2-way prospect. At SS, Deacon is on time with his prep step, he anticipates the ball off the bat, and plays through his backhand. He has good angles to the ball and makes the routine play. At the plate, Deacon starts in a tall and closed stance. He loads his hands back into the launch position, engages his back hip into the ball, and consistently drives the ball to the opposite side of the field. On the bump, Deacon gathers over the rubber, controls his landing, and has a loose arm action. He has an easy delivery and whips his arm through the release point. His fastball has late run and his curveball has a medium break. Deacon will continue to improve with experience and we hope to see his progress in the future.
