Dylan Manwaring is a guy who clearly has some size, strength, pro background and potentially pro aptitude. So those are very nice building blocks.
I did like him at the Area Codes. My main questions in the future, knowing I probably won’t see him again for a while, centered around how much consistent contact and can he move enough defensively to take advantage of the arm, no matter where he plays. Obviously in the BP film there was some quickness and explosiveness, though I can’t say I love the ankle trigger. A minor detail. Scout love to give sons of players many, many, many benefits of the doubt. Sometimes it’s warranted and sometimes it’s not. But in this case, because of the size, strength and quickness, the way the ball jumped off the bat, I could go with following this guy.
