Jayden is a solid/athletic (6'0"/205) 1B who showed very well during his time at the Under Armour All-America Pre-Season Tournament. With the bat is where he excels. He stands in the box with an open setup with centered balance, looking comfortable and ready to jump on a pitch he likes. Hands are quick generating plus bat speed as he squares the ball up creating consistent/hard contact (93 mph). He hits hard line-drives from gap-to-gap. He also does a nice job with 2-strikes (as shown in games) and looks to put the barrel on the ball any way he can. Once on base, he's also a threat thanks to his speed. At 1B, he is a great target and can move athletically up and down the line. He works into a square fielding position and gathers well. He has a clean transfer with a very strong arm for a 1B (88 mph). Bracy is a talented athlete who (2021 grad) will make and impact as he enters his junior season.
