01/08/2021 - 2021 Baseball Factory Pre-Season Prospects Tournament (MS) Declan continues to show as a prospect with improvements in his baseball abilities. At the plate, hitting/power potential have improved through a squared setup. Hands are quick and work through an aggressive approach. He stays inside the ball, utilizing all fields through a line drive approach. Behind the plate he shows a squared setup and tracks the ball well with a soft glove. He utilizes his body well through the blocking process, centering balls well out front. Pop times showed in the 2.79 range with accuracy/carry on his throws. Declan is a talented 2025 prospect with a bright future ahead of himself.

12/27/2020 - Baseball Factory East Coast Winter Classic Declan continues to show improvements in his baseball abilities and has a promising future on the diamond. He is a leader behind the dish and will take command in games. Defensively, he shows a squared setup and tracks the ball well into a soft mitt. He utilizes his body well through the blocking process, centering balls well out front. Pop times have improved as he threw his lowest time to date at 2.47. Times will continue to drop as he builds more arm strength through a long toss program and works to get rid of the ball quicker. Mental makeup is a plus as he is very coachable and has great knowledge of the game. At the plate, hitting/power potential has improved through an athletic setup. He has fluid rhythm while getting good hand separation. Hands are quick and work through a level swing path. He stays inside the ball, utilizing all fields with gap-to-gap pop. With 4 1/2 years to further develop, Declan has a high ceiling with time and room to progress his game.

12/12/2020 - Texas Regional Offensive Skills and Pitching/Catching Combined Weekend Declan is a C prospect who worked hard on his skills during the Texas Regional Skills weekend. Behind the plate, Declan presents a good target to the pitcher and receives with a quiet glove. He gains ground well on his throws, keeping them accurate to the 2B bag. He tucks his chin when blocking and keeps dirt balls in front of him. Making a cleaner exchange can help Declan throw out more baserunners. At the plate, this RHH sets up in a tall stance and takes a controlled stride. He is fluid to load and works to barrel up the baseball, driving the ball from gap to gap. Declan can produce more pop off the barrel by engaging his lower half more. Overall, Declan is a solid prospect who has the time and potential to further build upon his skills on the field.

10/11/2020 - All-In Membership - Frisco (DFW), TX Declan is a young (2025 grad) R/R, 2-way player as a C/2B. Behind the dish, he sits in well with athletic/quiet actions and presents a low target. He tracks pitches into a soft mitt and sticks them well. He works hard laterally to body up pitches in the dirt, working to center them off of his chest. Transfer is clean as he works in-line toward 2B on his throws - pop times at 2.64. Times will continue to drop as he quickens his exchange and gains more arm strength (long toss). At 2B, he comes to get the GB and hustles into a square fielding position. He gathers well and makes accurate DP feeds and throws to 1B. Continuing to develop his footwork & agility will help to increase lateral range in the INF. With the bat, this righty shows an athletic stance with centered balance. He lets the ball travel into the hitting zone, squares the ball up and looks to drive the middle of the field. More hand separation on his load along with more lower 1/2 drive will help to increase pop off of the barrel. Despain has a solid all-around skill-set with still a ton of time to progress and physically mature (get stronger).

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).
