Reece is a lean catcher who will graduate in 2020. Behind the plate, pop times showed in the 2.41 range with accuracy on his throws. Times will continue to drop as he builds more arm strength through a long toss program. He tracks balls well and sticks balls in the zone through an athletic setup. He utilizes his body well through the blocking process but needs to work to get down sooner. At the plate, he displays a squared setup. Hands are quick and work through a level swing path. He stays inside the ball, utilizing all fields through a line drive approach with power showing best to the pull side. Power will increase as he utilizes his lower half more efficiently. With 2 years to further develop, Reece has abilities with time and room to progress his game.
