03/16/2014 - College PREP - Kenosha, WI Jacob is a strong (6'0/230) power hitting catcher with a good upside. Offensively, he gets into a solid loaded position and drives his backside lower 1/2 to help generate power off the bat. He gets good torque and route to contact was direct for good barrel accuracy to the pull side. When Jacob's hands are more active with extension, he has power to all fields. Behind the plate, Jacob has a good base and receives each pitch softly. He will continue to work on moving in-line toward second base. Quickening his transfer/exchange will help lower pop times. With no fear of blocking balls in the dirt, Jacob can get some looks to advance his game to the next level thanks to being a coachable player.
