Ryan is a 1B/RHP in the 2024 class. In the field, he shows solid footwork around the bag. He is a strong target for his defenders and keeps his eyes behind the leather well. His transfers are clean and his high ¾ release produces accurate feeds. Working to sink his hips and stay low to the ground will allow for hop adjustments. On the mound, he has a fluid delivery and a loose arm. His FB sits 77-80 with tremendous movement down in the zone. His CB (61-4) and slider (69-71) both have tight spin and late break. His CH compliments his FB well and sits 70-2 with feel. At the plate, he has a strong upper body and has quick hands that stay inside the baseball. Shows power to the pull side (88 exit velo) and creates hard contact. Path is short and on-plane. Overall, Ryan has great upside and a must follow in the 2024 class.

Ryan is a tall, solid RHP who has a promising future on the diamond. On the mound, delivery is sound / repeatable as he shows good tempo through a strong balance point, allowing his arm action to work quick and free to the plate. Fastball shows a range of 76-80 mph. Breaking ball displays 10/4 shape with late break. He maintains arm speed on his changeup with sinking action. Slider is harder tight spin and short / sharp break. Off speed stuff show as quality pitches that will get outs. Control is outstanding as he throws strikes with all his pitches. At the plate, he continues to shine, displaying solid hitting abilities with well above average power potential through an athletic setup. Hands are quick and work through an aggressive swing path. He has strength in his swing and makes consistent hard contact 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, Ryan has an upside and will get looks from the collegiate coaches with his baseball abilities.
