Uncommitted Senior Spotlight: Christian Oppor


Tell Taylor
Wisconsin Scouting Director

Throughout this offseason, we'll be spending the time spotlighting the top uncommitted members of Wisconsin's Class of 2022. We're sharing in-event analysis and video we've collected from these players throughout their high school careers. To attend a future PBR Wisconsin showcase yourself, visit this page. We just released our 2022 calendar, which is slated to start on Jan. 30 in Kenosha.

Today, we're highlighting the left-hander from Columbus, Christian Oppor, who's ranked No. 3 overall in the state's senior class, and No. 251 nationally. The southpaw is one of the state's best athletes, and he shows it well from the mound, as he's able to fluidly and naturally reach premium velocity with little effort, raising a considerable ceiling onto his long-term value as he continues to develop and mature.

Continue on below for a closer look at his mechanics, statistics, and latest scouting report as he heads into the final offseason of his prep career.

Scouting Report

SENIOR SPOTLIGHT
Christian is a lean, explosive athlete out of Wisconsin that’ll be 17 on draft day. Standing at 6’1 and running his fastball into the mid-90’s, it’s easy to imagine the left-hander signing out of high school. Utilizing a drop and drive style with very aggressive rotation, the arm comes through eye-catching speed. Christian is one of the few arms running up premium velocity while clearing his glove outside the frame. His impulse moment may be as large as any in the Midwest -  when he gets better at capturing this explosiveness, his fastball will rise. His second best pitch would be his changeup, which possesses high degrees of movement for the type, and a curveball that spins above average, with below average movement. When the movement correlates with the spin, this pitch will deepen his ability to put away hitters at the next level. Over multiple looks this fall, it appears that he’s made significant progress chipping away at repeating his delivery. To the untrained eye, one might miss the differences between his mound moves this summer, and film from his last outing of the year. It’s fair to say Oppor has made significant progress in 2021, and has been building momentum heading into the 2022 signing window.
