Superb player who has a chance to enjoy a spectacular career at LSU … a very polished defender on the infield with good hands, and he possesses a very strong, accurate arm across the diamond … at the plate, he has a very contact-oriented approach and uses the middle of the field, but also has some home run power to the pull side.
