    Drafted out of Iowa Western CC in 2014 in the 19th round by the Cardinals, Thompson-Williams opted to return for another year, then transferred to South Carolina for his junior season. Scouts have pointed to maturity issues in the past, but he's grown as a person, player and in terms of physical strength. A gifted athlete and a plus runner, Thompson-Williams can make highlight-reel plays in the outfield but other times can be too aggressive and take poor routes. A lefthanded hitter, Thompson-Williams can handle offspeed pitches but at times has difficulty catching up to 90-plus mph velocity. He's gotten his hands started faster to compensate, as some scouts have knocked his bat speed. Though he has tools, most evaluators view Thompson-Williams as a fourth outfielder more than an everyday player.
