1/17/21

Alabama commit, 6-foot-2, 190-pound physical frame. Clocked a 60 time of 7.11 at the event. Advanced during batting practice, the right-handed hitter recorded an exit velocity of 100 mph. Starts in a balanced wide stance with a controlled load, then uses a leg kick. Had explosive bat speed and upward swing plane. During his round he produced tons of loud contact and found lots of barrels. Gap to gap approach. Smooth in the infield, had a live arm with throws that topped out at 90 mph; showed athletic feet, and twitchy hands. Consistent accuracy to the bases, used a ¾ slot with a very quick arm action. Advanced on the mound, showing electric arm speed he used a high ¾ arm angle and a quick arm action. Uses some effort in his delivery. Athletic balance point. Produced a fastball that came in at 92-93 mph and topped out at 94 mph; shows running action and consistent control. His 11/5 curveball (76-79) had command low in the zone and tight action. Had sinking action and arm side command on his changeup (80-81).

1/18/20

On the mound, Ford showed premium stuff and arm strength. Really pounded the zone with all three pitches from an athletic delivery. The fastball obviously came out of the hand easily and showed some late life. The fastball sat 89-91 mph with spin rates in the mid 2100’s- low 2300’s. The breaking ball showed sharp downward tilt at 75-78 mph. The change up showed plus deception in the lower 80’s and can be a plus pitch. Explosive arm. Ford was also impressive during the infield portion and he showed nice range laterally and the arm strength once again jumped out as he was 88 to 1B. The feet are even in the stance at the plate and he shows a simple, yet powerful approach at the plate. There is slight tilt in the swing plane and the barrel shows some violence in the hitting zone. Showed a middle to pull side approach and was 89 mpg off the tee. A definite two way ‘23 big time guy.
