    What I'm hearing is that Jud would likely be a first rounder had he not opted to be an early enrollee here at UF.

    Does the baseball term - 5 tool athlete - apply to Jud? It may well.

    Had a scout tell me Jud is “a big swing and miss guy”. Lots of power but too many K’s. Reminded him of Wil Dalton and Kenan Bell. You see the potential but you see the work that needs to be done. Said it was a good move for him to come to UF and work on hitting the offspeed to improve his stock, which had slipped for this reason. “If you’re going to consider paying a kid $2MM, there better not be any apparent holes.”

    I’ve never seen the kid, so we’ll have to see how that assessment plays itself out this season.

    In baseball the term 5-tool guy usually means—
    1- Hits for power
    2- Hits for average
    3- Speed
    4-Fielding
    5- Throwing

    I have known and followed Jud since he was 7 years old. Last Spring he batted .450 (.480 if you include preseason stats) Through summer and fall playing for the Scorps he batted over .400. He was a PG and UA All American. The kid has faced some of the best pitching in the nation and excelled at every level. He can hit.
