11/01/2015 - College PREP - Vinton (Roanoke), VA Rakwan is a lean SS/OF that will graduate in 2018. Foot speed is outstanding as indicated by his 7.09 60 time. In the MIF, he utilizes his quick feet well in his lateral movement, flashing range. He works to square balls up and displays clean hands. Defensive grade will continue to improve as he attacks balls more and play through while presenting hands more out front. In the OF, he takes proper routes / angles in tracking down balls but needs to work to get behind more to play through with momentum to his target. Throws are accurate but needs to build more arm strength through a long toss program. At the plate, he shows a closed setup with balance. Hands are loose and work through a level swing path. He makes consistent contact, mainly to the pull side. Hitting grade will continue to improve as he works to get stride foot down sooner and keep hands inside the ball to utilize all fields. With 3 years to further develop, Rakwan has abilities with time and room to improve.
