11/02/2014 - National Tryout - Shreveport, LA Jacob has developed his game well since we last saw him in 2013. With the bat, this RHH shows a closed stance with good balance. Swing path is level as he consistently squares the ball up. He extends through contact and uses the entire field. In the OF, he tracks down balls in the gaps with speed (7.01) and can cover some ground. He works behind the through the fly-ball. He gathers well, has a clean exchange and makes accurate throws into his target. Only a 2017 grad - Jacob has skills that will provide success on the diamond.
