Jack is a thin OF who will graduate in 2021. Defensively, Jack has active feet, good pre-pitch actions, and he fields aggressively. He centers the ball well on his body, makes plays consistently, and has a loose/accurate arm to his cut off man. Fielding in better rhythm and continuing to add arm strength will help defensive skills improve. At the plate, Jack has a crouched stance, good balance, and he stays inside the baseball. He has a direct swing path, makes consistent contact, and he uses his lower body. Hitting can get better with work on stride/load, timing, and barrel accuracy.
