Mental makeup is a plus as he is a team player, coachable, and plays the game hard.

He works to barrel up the baseball and sprays to all fields. Taking a shorter stride can help Jovann improve as a hitter. Overall, Jovann is a solid prospect who has the potential to further develop his skills on the field.

07/15/2018 - Baseball Factory D.C. All Star Experience (Ages 14-18) Jovann is an athletic and talented 2020 Catching prospect that made several adjustments throughout the training weekend. Behind the dish, Jovann starts in an athletic stance and tries to work behind the ball. He sees the ball into his body when blocking and recovers blocks well. Continuing to exchange the ball in front of his body and staying directional with his footwork will allow him to be more accurate to the bases. Presenting a low target and keeping a quiet head will allow him to see the ball into the glove. At the plate, Jovann starts in an open stance, he gets his back side through the swing, and stays balanced through contact. He needs to continue to attack the inside part of the ball and load his lower half knee to knee. This will allow him to be more explosive to the ball. Jovann will continue to improve with experience and we hope to see his progress in the future.

11/09/2017 - Baseball Factory Select Training & Competition in Arizona (Ages 14-18) Jovann is a compact, athletic 2020 catching prospect who plays the game hard and is a leader on the field. He has really improved his arm strength and lowered his pop times in the process. He works in line behind the plate to receive with presented hands to stick pitches in the zone. He has quick feet to drop and block the ball to center to keep it in front. At the dish, he loads to a stacked position and shows centered balance throughout his swing. He gets on plane early and has a flat path through the zone to make consistent contact to all fields. Quieting his body will reduce the movement in his swing and lead to more hard contact. Jovann is a prospect we look forward to watching as he continues to develop.

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 (what he can do today), 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. However, for High School players we use only grades 20-70 (grades 10-18 do not apply), while for Middle School players we use only grades 10-52 (grades 55-70 do not apply).
