11/05/2017 - College PREP - Plano (DFW), TX Jacob is a broad, strong (5'10”, 178lbs) catching prospect who shows advanced skills for his age. He is polished as a hitter, displaying the ability to hit the ball hard and deliver the barrel of the bat. He has a smooth swing and works up the middle, staying back to react to any pitch. He works on a direct path to the ball and is able to make, consistent hard contact to spray line drive base hits to all fields. Behind the plate, he has efficient feet to get around the ball to block laterally and keep everything in front. He receives well on the outer half to gain strikes and has a good exchange to throw accurately. Staying low to throw will further lower his pop times to second. Jacob is an intriguing prospect we look forward to continue watching develop.
