5/15/14 - Elite national prospect, currently ranked No. 2 in Illinois’ 2016 class and No. 5 overall. Verbally committed to Vanderbilt. Extremely projectable 6-foot-5, 185-pound frame, long limbs with plenty of room for physical development. Opened the first inning sitting at 90 mph, with a few 91s and touched 92 once. Worked at 89-90 in second and settled in at 87-89 through five innings. Slider is a true separator pitch with potential to be a devastating wipeout pitch in the future. Throws his slider regularly at 78-79 mph through five innings, getting up to 81 once. He pitches with very little effort and looks as though he hasn’t come close to reaching his peak, which is a scary proposition. Works between ¾ to high 3/4 slot with a long arm action on the backside.

Change up flashed sink, 72-76 mph. Fellows is a Vanderbilt commit. In one of his first preseason bullpens Fellows worked easily with little effort. There is a lot more in the tank for Fellows and we will be sure to follow his first varsity season this spring with the Hiltoppers.

Fellows showcased as one of the premier Class of 2016 players in the state. On the mound, the physically advanced 5-foot-11 Fellows operated from a high-¾ arm slot with a clean arm action. Fellows located three pitches for strikes and displayed rhythm and balance throughout his mechanics. His fastball displayed run and sat at 80-81 mph. His slider showcased late, tight break, and he showcased a feel for his changeup which displayed sink. At the plate, the left-handed hitter continued to impress, showcasing a balanced swing that whipped through the zone. In the field, he played through the ball and exhibited solid hands.
