10/16/2011 - College PREP - St. Louis, MO Jacob is a tall and athletic 2-way player that will graduate in 2014. At 3B, he shows a good pre-pitch setup, takes a good first step to the ball, sure hands and a clean exchange. He makes accurate throws to his target with good carry and he consistently fields the ball out front. He needs to continue to work on playing on the balls of his feet for more range, get his glove out front early and take better routes to his backhand side. In the outfield, he shows a low and aggressive approach playing through the ball to throw. He made consistent throws to his target with a clean exchange. He needs to work behind the ball better on fly balls and develop a crow hop to help get his momentum going towards his target. At the plate, he has strong hands, a line drive approach and makes solid contact. He has good hand separation with good bat speed and serious power to the gaps for his age. Jacob needs to continue to work hard on foot speed and quickness to round out his overall game. He is a player to follow for the future.
