AZDR Prospect Snapshot: Shadow Mountain’s Brandon Lewis (2019 Uncommitted)
One of the most under the radar players in the 2019 class is Shadow Mountain outfielder Brandon Lewis.
Brandon burst onto the scene as a sophomore, starting every game and hitting .330 for the Matadors.
He followed that up with a sensational junior campaign were he hit .457 and was named 1st Team All Region.
Brandon was poised for a big summer, but unfortunately a pulled quadricep muscle in the first tournament basically ended his summer season.
Brandon is healthy now, and will be playing with the Cave Creek Bombers again this fall.
Brandon is a very capable defender in the outfield. He plays center field at Shadow Mountain, but will probably transition to a corner spot at the next level. He gets excellent reads and has a good throwing arm. He’s also a very good defensive 1st baseman.
It’s the bat that is a separator, however.
He sets up with an open, wide stance, then gets into a good hitting position. He does an excellent job of getting the barrel flat in the zone and keeps it there a long time. He’s a line drive, gap to gap guy who uses the field very well. There’s not a lot of wasted movement.
Brandon is also a solid student, carrying a 3.3 GPA.
He will be in attendance at the 2018 AZDR Fall Showcase, and colleges will get a close look at a player who will be a very productive addition to whoever lands his services.
