    A 6-foot-1, 200-pound senior first baseman, Connor is a solid senior sign target in the 2023 class with a line drive swing from the left side and hard contact. He’s hit for average and shown solid plate discipline throughout his college career, though he’s never shown the sort of in-game power you’d like to see for a first base profile. In 2023 he hit .329/.415/.502 with five home runs, 20 doubles, a 13.1% strikeout rate and an 11.6% walk rate. He is a good defender around the first base bag, with solid instincts, but defensive aptitude at the bottom of the defensive spectrum only means so much when you don’t slug—and through 171 career games Connor has just nine home runs to his name. He has played the outfield corners, so potentially he could fit there, where his power might matter a bit less.
