Willard is an "04" switch hitting middle infielder with serious tools. At 5'11/165 he looks good now and will get bigger down the road. He runs very well with athletic ease. His arm projects to be MLB above average. He has great instincts and quick feet to go along with his good arm. He has nice shortstop actions and a feel for the game. At the plate he is impressive, but does collapse on the back side at times. He has a nice swing with good bat speed. He stays inside and uses the field with present day wood bat gap power. He could end up being as good with the bat as he is on defense. And he hits from both sides adding to his value. Matt is an excellent student with a 1310 SAT.

Willard stood out among all the middle infielders in Chapel Hill with his MLB average speed (6.88) and slightly above average arm strength. In fact, Willard is the type of player who shows a better arm in game competition than during workouts and unleashed several strong throws from the hole that got the attention of the scouts and coaches in the stands. Willard is stronger than his 5-11, 165 lb. frame indicates and can handle a wood bat with some pop. He has a power approach at the plate that he might need to tone down a bit at higher levels, but it's fun to watch him hit. He shows outstanding instincts for the game and should end up at a Top DI school. He projects to get even better with plenty of room for additional strength. Matt is a top student with a 1310 SAT.
