Here is how Perfect Game scouted Groff during his recruitment while in high school:
“Ethan Groff is a 2018 SS/2B with a 5-10 175 lb. frame from Orlando, FL who attends Trinity Prep. Medium middle infielder’s build, room to get stronger. Smooth defensive actions, stays balanced and moves through the ball well, soft hands, has a compact arm action and a quick release on his throws, fundamentally sound defensive player, ran a 7.24 at the PG Junior National Showcase. Right handed hitter, hits from an open stance with a high hand start, hands dive inside on his swing path, exaggerated inside swing, mid to opposite field contact approach. Excellent student.”
