Vardian is a tick undersized, but he played a big part in Bishop McCort’s run to a Class A state championship in Pennsylvania. He went 8-0 on the mound with a 1.91 ERA. He sat 84-86 mph at a showcase in the fall, but was consistently 86-88 over the summer with significant arm-side run. He can also command a 78-79 slider that has sharp, late break. His velocity ticked up in a bullpen session in October, when he sat 87-88 and touched 89. His arm is loose and he hides the ball well.

Still uncommitted when he went to the Pennsylvania Elite Prospect Showcase in November, Vardian was 88-89 with good secondary stuff. He committed to Penn State on his way home from the event.
