Jake continues to show as a top prospect on the diamond. Pop times showed in the 1.91 range with on line carry (88 mph velocity) and accuracy on his throws. Receiving/blocking skills are tremendous as he shows off his athletic abilities. At the plate, he continues to shine. He has fluid rhythm while getting good hand separation. Barrel is whipped through the zone (90 mph exit velocity) as he connects through a line drive path. A talented prospect - he will make things happen both behind the dish as well as with the bat.

The 6'2"/195 pound Holland is one of the top catchers in the 2019 class. His sturdy, athletic frame plays very well behind the plate where he sits quietly, shows good flexibility and has strong hands. His efficient footwork, exchange and release lead to times as low as 1.93. He is also very good on balls in the dirt. As a hitter Jake has a short, simple stroke and is very strong at contact. There are very few holes in his swing and the ball jumps well off the barrel. He's balanced throughout and can catch up to velocity as well as adjust well to off-speed stuff. Jake is the total package at a premium position who will garner lots of attention moving forward.
