A four-year starter at Oklahoma, Hardman has an advantage over many prospective college draftees in that scouts and front offices have seen that he can hit for power with a wood bat. Hardman’s eight home runs were tied for third most in the Cape Cod League in 2019. Hardman did not show as much power this spring, but he did show a more advanced approach that made him one of the toughest outs in the Big 12. Hardman hit above .400 for most of the year, dipping to .397/.481/.661 by the end of the year. Hardman projects as an average hitter with above-average power. Defensively, he is average at first. He played third base in the Cape, and a team confident in its defensive development could see if he can handle a move to the hot corner, although his range there would likely be below-average.
