Jake Godfrey, RHP, Providence Catholic HS
Ranked No. 3 in Illinois and No. 8 overall in the PBR coverage area, the 6-foot-3, 170-pound Godfrey will no doubt be one of the most coveted Class of 2014 right-handers in the Midwest. Long and loose, Godfrey is one of several top-level arms on Team Illinois in the Prep Baseball Report Midwest Future Games on August 4-5 at the University of Illinois.
Godfrey proved in the spring he can compete with the best, as he posted an impressive 6-1 record for Providence against top-level competition in the Chicago Catholic League. Godfrey’s fastball comfortably sits in the upper-80s, and we’ve seen him up to 91 on occasion. He also throws a harder curveball that has the chance to be a wipeout pitch.
As Godfrey continues to physically develop, he has the talent to become one of the premier arms in the country.
The Midwest Future Games, powered by Under Armour, will feature the best Class of 2014 prospects from six states.
