I wouldn't put him out of my top 30, personally, but I'd bet that's the reason scouts aren't falling over him. If he were born two days earlier we'd be talking about the nice overage season he's putting together right now, you know?
Same could be said of Seth Jones and Hunter Shinkaruk.

I don't question his age vs stats, I'm more worried about effort, commitment, etc.

His production was good last year after an extremely slow start.
