Noah is an athletic SS/RHP that showed good actions in the middle of the infield. Defensively, he worked in front with his sure hands and was efficient with his feet to make plays. He got ride of the ball well and showed good range right and left. Offensively, he had good balance, got his hands activated in his launch and delivered the barrel to contact generating decent bat speed. He worked through the ball getting extended in front and with more work to stay compact will hit with greater authority. On the mound, he threw from over top with exceptional feel for his CB with late/sharp action and 11/5 shape. To date, it was the best we had seen the breaking ball, and he showed promising feel and growth for his CH. Increasing arm strength all around is essential to his further development. In all - Noah continues to show growth and should have a solid junior season.

Noah is a young, lean RHP/SS that will graduate in 2016. Currently, he projects best at SS for the next level. Feet are active / aggressive as he moves well laterally and works to square balls up, displaying soft / sure hands. He attacks balls and plays through well with his body, displaying smooth, clean actions. Defensive grades will continue to improve as he works to improve double play feeds / turns and increases foot quickness. Throws are accurate, flashing carry as he gets rid of the baseball quickly but will benefit by building more arm strength through a long toss program. At the plate, he shows a balanced / squared approach and he tracks the ball well. Hands are quick, flashing bat speed, working to and through a level swing path, creating extension. He shows a feel for the barrel with baseball jumping off the bat when centered, mainly to the pull side. Hitting grades will continue to improve, as he learns to work inside the ball, utilizing all fields. On the mound, fastball shows a range of 74-75 mph. Breaking ball displays 11/5 shape with gradual break. He maintains arm speed on his changeup but needs to develop more movement on pitch. Control is solid as he throws strikes with all his pitches. Stock to the mound will continue to rise as he builds more arm strength. With 3 years to further develop, Noah has a lot of potential and will catch the eyes of the collegiate coaches with his baseball abilities, possibly as a two-way guy.
