05/31/2008 - College PREP - Kearns, UT Jake is a tall thin player with the ability to play two positions. Behind the plate, Jake has soft hands and good flexibility. He has decent footwork but needs to work on releasing the ball quicker. Currently he takes a little crow hop to throw which affects his pop times. He gets down well to block balls in the dirt. At SS, Jake works hard and can throw well on the run. He turns the double play with good ability. Balance becomes an issue when fielding ground balls because his weight is a little too far back on his heels. At the plate, Jake has balance and keeps his hands inside the ball. He hits a lot of line drives and extends nicely through the ball. He is a slightly above average hitter.
