At SS, Will showed fluid footwork, good range, and he plays through the ball well. He has a quick/clean exchange, and a short/loose arm with carry and consistency to his target. On the hill, Will increased velocity to 75 MPH, showing a rhythmic delivery, a loose arm action, and good extension. His off-speed show well, he is in the zone, and he finishes off his pitches well.

Will continues to show a promising future on the diamond. On the mound is where he projects best. Delivery is sound / repeatable allowing his arm action to work loose / free to the plate. Fastball showed a range of 68-71 mph. He maintains arm speed on his changeup, showing a feel for pitch with sinking action. Stock on the mound will continue to rise as he builds more arm strength through a long toss program. At the plate, he shows an athletic setup. Hands are quick and work through an aggressive swing path. He makes consistent contact through a line drive approach. Power will increase as he utilizes his lower half more efficiently. At 3B, he displays proper footwork and moves well laterally. Hands are clean and presents well out front. Feet are aggressive as he attacks balls but will benefit by playing through with his body. Range will continue to increase as he increases foot quickness.

Will is a (5'9''/130) RHP/SS. Defensively at SS, he shows active footwork as he creates solid angles to the baseball. He comes up with a clean transfer and makes accurate throws to his target. On the mound, this righty gathers over the rubber and has a 3-pitch arsenal. He gets to a tall balance point, delivers from a lo 3/4 arm slot and works in line towards home plate. With the bat, Will displays a square setup and gets back into a good load. He swings on a short-direct path through the zone and barrels up pitches driving them on a line. Overall abilities in his game will improve with work on the following.
1. Get square on GB's
2. Develop soft hands
3. Work around the GB
1. Develop CB
