Scouting Report

6-foot-0, 170-pound athletic frame. It is tough to predict where the 2018 graduate will play for Nebraska. With all his athleticism, it’s easy to figure that Shawver will get a chance to fill multiple roles for the Cornhuskers. The two-way Nebraska recruit possess above average athleticism (6.71 60), and in some ways, one could argue that he isn’t fully transferring it over to the mound - which is scary. The 6-foot, 170-pound southpaw uses a rocker step to the outside of his body to initiate his lower half. He follows with a big, deliberate leg kick, temporarily stopping his momentum. On this occasion, he sat 85-86 mph with good natural cut to his fastball. Just as a frame of reference, he showed a top velocity of 92 mph from the outfield on his throws. He supplemented his fastball with a 67-69 mph breaking ball that showed gradual 1/7 break down in the zone. His changeup showed fade to the arm side at 74-77.
