08/15/2021 - Official College Recruiting Membership - Kannapolis (Charlotte), NC Malik is an athletic OF who has a promising future on the diamond. In the OF, defensive abilities are solid as he takes proper routes / angles in tracking down balls. Feet are aggressive as he works to get behind balls to play through with momentum to his target. He moves well laterally and utilizes his foot quickness (7.35 60 time) in covering a lot of ground. Throws are accurate but will benefit by building more arm strength through a long toss program. At the plate, he continues to shine, displaying well above average hitting abilities with solid power potential through a squared setup. Hands are quick and work through a level swing path. He stays inside the ball, utilizing all fields with gap to gap pop. Lower half works well through the swing and shows a feel for the barrel. With 2 years to further develop, Malik has a lot of potential and will get looks from the collegiate coaches as he continues to progress his game.
