08/17/2018 - College PREP - Sioux Falls, SD Samuel is a wiry, athletic prospect who works his tail off at all times on the field. He is a wall behind the plate, letting nothing get by him and controlling the run game. He has quick feet and actions to slide and block to deaden the ball to center. He sticks pitches in the zone and has a quick transfer to get rid of the ball to second. At the dish, he has a line drive approach and flashes top of the order ability with his bat to ball skills. He uses a strong lower half to generate bat speed and extends through contact to drive the ball. Working on a direct path to the ball will result in more consistent contact and base hits. Samuel is a talented player with lots of potential.
