02/16/2014 - College PREP - Monticello, IA Kurtis is a hard hitting shortstop that will graduate in 2015. Offensively, he handles the stick with good rhythm and generates plus bat speed while maintaining his barrel accuracy. He gets to an athletic/strong hitting position and has good actions. The ball is driven with backspin and he has pull-side gap pop. Defensively, he made some plays and threw to his target with some carry. His glove work would benefit from added reps and mechanical tune-ups. In all - Kurtis is a solid young hitter that will find his way in a line-up with the bat, but needs to find added consistency with the mitt.
