Is this based on two reports of his swing? With the power and exit velo being plus and then crazy speed, how could you not like him?

I don't see how you could project that he won't make contact based on the reports. He's a cold weather Vandy commit. That right there tells me he has *something*.
How can you not like him based on two reports of his swing when I can say he has power, exit velo and crazy speed based on zero reports?!?!?!

He's raw talent with physical tools, and already has people wondering about his aggressiveness in your own links.

Yeah I mentioned that if you read my post.

I wanted to know about the hard contact and why phins didn’t like him.

Aggressiveness is coachable and he’s 18 last I checked.

Anyone sign yet? Obviously Fletcher is the only guy with leverage. But I thought we'd have a bunch of college guys committed by now.

In the past, they've tended to announce them in bulk. Players' Twitter account is where you'll see most now information.

This is what happens when you have an almost unlimited budget and an absolutely top notch front office. An extremely desirable/marketable city doesnt hurt, either.

Unfortunately, we kinda have none of those things right now.
