Jacob is an athletic and talented 2021 3B prospect. At the hot corner, Jacob is on time with his prep step, he has an efficient first step to the ball, and he plays through the ball. He has an efficient backhand and makes accurate throws from multiple arm angles. At the plate, Jacob starts in an open stance, loads his hands back into the drive position, and gets to a balance position. He rotates his backside through the ball, has a compact swing, and looks to drive the ball to the pull side. Jacob is highly motivated and we hope to see his progress in the future.

Jacob is a young, solid, 3rd baseman who will graduate in 2021. Defensively, Jacob has soft/presentable hands, playable footwork, and he keeps the ball in front of his body. He makes plays, has good footwork on the backhand, and gets rid of the ball quickly with accuracy and momentum to his target. If Jacob can quicken his feet and field in a lower position, INF skills will improve. At the plate, Jacob has a tall set-up, he loads well, and his hands work. He makes contact, hits to the opposite field, and he taps into some lower body. Hitting can improve with better timing, barrel accuracy, and a shorter swing path.
