Cohoes attends Germany's Patch High School, an American high school on the Patch Barracks, so he is the rare European prospect who is also draft-eligible. A 6-foot-2, 185-pound shortstop, Cohoes is extremely raw even by European standards but gets attention for his projectable body and excellent athleticism. He's one of the best athletes in Europe and a plus runner with an above-average arm. His hands need work but he has the speed to play center field if he can't stick at shortstop. Scouts' biggest question with Cohoes is his bat. He has a quick stroke, but he has trouble maintaining his swing and is raw at the plate. He has hit well against his high school competition but he hasn't had to face Europe's best prospects. He has a verbal commitment to Ohio State and would likely face a difficult transition to pro ball if he signs, but professional instruction could help him unlock his raw potential.
