Official Scouting Report

  • Class Rating
  • SS/RHPPosition Projection

11/15/2020 - All-In Membership - Germantown (Memphis), TN Will is a young (2027 grad), R/R, 2-way player as a SS/RHP. With the bat, this RHH shows a tall setup with smooth rhythm to load. He maintains a quiet head, tracks pitches into the zone and jumps on ones that he likes. He squares the ball up, creates good extension through contact and sprays the ball to all parts of the field. Working to increase his bat speed while engaging his full lower 1/2 will help to increase pop off of the barrel. At SS, he hustles into a square fielding position creating a good angle and tracks GB's into his mitt. He gathers well, has a clean exchange and makes accurate throws to 1B. Continuing to develop his footwork/agility will help to increase lateral range. On the mound, Will has a 3-pitch mix coming from a high 3/4 arm slot. He works to a controlled balance point, has smooth separation and stays directional toward the dish. FB ranges from 55-58 mph as he throws it for strikes consistently. Curveball has 11/5 shape - 48-50 mph. Changeup has slight arm side run and will only continue to improve as he throws it more and more. Akers has tools with still a ton of time to develop and physically mature (get stronger).

Tool Grade Scale

Our main goals with the BF "10-70" Scouting Scale are to provide the player with a realistic evaluation of his "PRESENT" abilities (what he can do today), and to provide college coaches with information they can use to identify and/or compare potential recruits.

Tools are graded for all players and pitchers, regardless of age or graduation year. However, for High School players we use only grades 20-70 (grades 10-18 do not apply), while for Middle School players we use only grades 10-52 (grades 55-70 do not apply).
