Talking with several of my scout buddies over the years, the team's condition or performance makes no difference to them whatsoever. They look for "players" no matter where they play or who they play for. Afterall they are drafting individuals not teams.
Not to worry, AJ is right where he needs to be, he'll get his shot. Just tell him to stay within himself especially while his team is struggling, kids tend to try to overdo it when their teammates are having a tough time.
