Tuck and run with the ball.
I think this guy could go either way. He does the main thing correctly each time, which is catching the ball. He bends his knees well and turns his hands when the ball is thrown below his waist. The balls that are thrown high he does a good job of not jumping which causes his eyes to move.
I wish he would build a diamond with his hands to allow the nose of the ball to enter through it and then allow his fingers to wrap around it. This is the only thing I wish he would have done a little better.
