Sophomore Pitcher/First Base
Memphis University School
“Conner got better and better as the fall went on. He learned what he has to do to attack hitters from his multiple arm slots in order to have success, which shows what kind of student of the game he is. Though he showed flashes of offensive success this fall, he factors in for us as a key reliever on the mound and a guy who I have no hesitation with putting at first base in a key defensive moments as well.”
