10/16/2022 - Official College Recruiting Membership - Summerville, SC Austin is a solid, athletic 3B who has a promising future on the diamond. At 3B, defensive abilities are solid as he displays clean / smooth actions. Feet are active as he displays proper footwork as he works to square ground and plays through with his body. Glove action is clean and presents well out front. Range will increase as he improves foot quickness. Throws are accurate with carry but will benefit by building more arm strength through a long toss program. At the plate, he continues to shine through an open setup. Hands are quick (83 mph exit velocity) and work through a level swing path. He stays inside the ball, utilizing all fields, flashing gap-to-gap pop. Lower half works well through the swing with an aggressive hip turn. With 2 years to further develop, Austin has potential with time and room to progress his game.
