Darin must see something here, so welcome Nathan! Decent sized kid, .294avr. Has a video on Youtube I think he made as a senior in HS.Added Nathan Chunn - JUCO Catcher from Modesto Community College
Swing looks ok. If you pause it at 1:25 you can see how is swing is at risk of being long. You can see his arm "bar" as he goes through the zone. In addition, he doesn't swing from the ground up. Notice how his legs and hips don't drive through his swing with authority? Not crazy about that. Now, if he played at a California Juco, I imagine his swing has gotten better as he has gotten stronger. In addition, I bet his swing is more inside out now than being so long. You can see why he is not D1 out of high school with the long swing and soft bottom half. Reetz is comparably a much better hitter.
I bet they offered several and said first one in gets the schollie.Thanks Basil, you picked up on my reluctance to get real excited. Yahoo says he committed w/o a visit. Maybe Tanner is looking at his options. The draft worries me, but it's something we have to worry about every year, especially if Darin continues to bring in better players.
I really appreciate your commentary. For example, breaking down his swing. Really adds to the board. Thanks!
