Official Scouting Report

  • Class Rating
  • 3B/RHPPosition Projection

03/22/2015 - College PREP - Greensboro, NC Josh continues to shine on the diamond. At the hot corner, he works lightly on the balls of his feet and presents his glove out in front. He works through the ball from right to left with smooth actions and has a clean exchange. Throws are strong with accuracy & carry across the diamond. With the bat, this RHH remains balanced with fluid rhythm in his hands. Quick hands whip the barrel to and through the zone as he connects and creates consistent/hard contact. On the mound, Josh throws strikes with all of his pitches (FB, CB, CH). FB has run ranging from 78-81 mph. Curveball shows 11/5 shape with late break, complimenting his FB well. He works in-line toward the dish and repeats his delivery well. This 6'3"/195 versatile athlete has the skill set that will play at a high level.

07/29/2013 - College PREP - Gaffney, SC Josh is a tall, lean 3B that will graduate in 2016. Defensive abilities are well above average. Feet are active as he works to square balls up and plays through well, displaying soft / clean hands. He moves well laterally and displays a plus backhand. For defensive grade to continue to improve, he needs to play through balls more and improve foot quickness. Throws are accurate, flashing carry across the diamond as he gets rid of the baseball quickly but will benefit by building more arm strength through a long toss program. At the plate, Hollifield shows a squared / balanced setup. Hands are quick, flashing bat speed through a level swing path. He makes consistent contact, mainly to the pull side. For hitting grade to continue to improve, he needs to work to keep hands inside the ball to utilize all fields. Power numbers will continue to improve as he learns to use his lower half more. With 3 years to further develop, Josh has a ton of abilities and will catch the eyes of the collegiate coaches as he continues to improve.

Tool Grade Scale

Our main goals with the BF "10-70" Scouting Scale are to provide the player with a realistic evaluation of his "present" abilities (tools), and to provide college coaches with information they can use to identify and/or compare potential recruits.

Tools are graded for all players and pitchers, regardless of age or graduation year, using the scale below. However, grades 10-18 are not available for use with High School players (ages 14-18), while grades 55-70 are not available for use with Pre High School players (ages 12-14). These instances are marked as "--- N/A ---" in the "Description" fields below.
