06/10/2018 - College PREP - Hoover (Birmingham), AL Julian is a strong, solid catcher who has a promising future on the diamond. Behind the dish, he utilizes his feet well in working in line to his target through a clean transfer / exchange as he gets rid of the baseball quickly. Pop times show a range of 1.91-2.05 with accuracy on his throws. He will control the running game with his feet / arm. He displays a soft glove and sticks balls well in the zone. He uses his body through the blocking process and is a wall behind the plate. At the plate, he shows a squared setup. Hands are quick (83 mph exit velocity) and work through an aggressive swing path. He stays inside the ball, utilizing all fields and flashes gap-to-gap pop. Julian has potential and will get looks from the collegiate coaches as he continues to progress his game.
