    We will see, all the stats are basically them as sophomores as they are only starting their junior campaign. I think there's a couple with some promise.

    Ever heard the saying "the bat swings him"? Here it is on his first swing.

    I'm not sure his film is against varsity teams. He has potential. He has a nice set up, but I question his strength.

    This is a perfect example of us going for a kid in California when I"m sure there is at least one kid in Omaha (my experience, no personal knowledge) that is just as good as this guy. I think this is similar to the post SSO made about the Nebraska running back that if his film was from Texas, we'd go nuts over him.

    I like this kid. Watch him throw. See how his right foot "replaces" his left foot? Really well done. I"d like to see him throw on some pitches that are on the outer half.

    Good swing. Big kid. We'll see how he develops. Much better film than the '16 catcher.
