Ward has a premium build and bloodlines, but a chronic lack of performance leads to divisive opinions. Ward stands a lithe 6-foot-5, 190 pounds. His father played football at Notre Dame and his uncle Mark Carrier was a first-round NFL draft pick and three-time Pro Bowl safety. Despite that foundation, Ward has rarely lived up to its promise. He transferred from Long Beach Poly to Gahr as a senior and sat out the required 30 days before becoming eligible and largely failed to impress. Ward's bat speed is average at best and he infrequently gets to his average raw power. He is not as athletic as he appears and is just an average runner and a poor defender. Ward is one of the youngest players in the class, so a team willing to be patient could take a chance on his body and youth in the top 10 rounds. He is committed to Southern California.
