McGruder is a 5-foot-7, 170-pound catalyst with plus-plus speed and the knowledge of how to use it. Though his lefthanded stroke can get long at times and leads to swings and misses, he understands that his job is to get on base. He ranked among the top 20 in NCAA Division I in triples (eight), walks (45), on-base percentage (.500) and steals (39 in 44 tries) during the regular season. He doesn't have much power, but the bigger concern is whether his hands are good enough to keep him at second base. He has plenty of range and enough arm strength for the infield.
