6-foot-3, 200-pound physical frame.Projectable on the mound, showing quick arm speed he had a high ¾ arm angle with a loose arm action. Tall-and-fall type pitcher who uses easy effort. Showed athletic balance point with in line shoulders. Lands square with an athletic finish. Sat with his fastball at 84-86 mph; has a heavy fastball that showed consistent command and hard action. He showed swing and miss action and consistent control on his sharp curveball 70-73 mph. His changeup 76-78 mph shows consistent control and fading action.  Big follow, one of the more projectable arms in the class of 2022, should be off the board early.

6-foot-3, 195-pound, strong, physical frame, showing strength throughout. A right-handed pitcher, smooth, easy delivery, smaller leg kick, could get loaded up on backside a bit more. The separation is even, stride is inline, showing minimal pull to front side, sticks the front leg and throws against it. The arm action is long and clean, working out of 3/4 to higher 3/4 slot. The fastball reached 85 mph, with more in there, filled up the zone, locating to both sides, fastball had late action to arm side. The breaking ball is deep with late break, hard to square up, gets on you, clocked at 71 mph, makings of having velocity to it. Showed feel for a changeup as well at 75-76 mph. Big follow, better days ahead for this one.

6-foot-3, 195-pound, large athletic frame. Showing strength throughout. A right-handed two-way player, at the plate, has an open to even approach, hands are loose, pre-pitch movement above the shoulders. The swing level to up, creates a good amount of backspin, lift and loft to all swings. Serious chance to hit with power at some point, had an exit velocity of 93 mph. Swung the bat extremely well during batting practice and in game play, hard consistent contact. In the outfield, has a big arm, 85 mph, long, clean arm action. Gains ground, steps through hard, all throws are downhill, easy carry and flight. Off the mound, fastball was 83-85 mph, harder breaking ball in the low 70's. The delivery is simple, repeats, lands in line pitching downhill, getting out front on release, shortens the gap to the plate. Spin rate is advanced, look for a serious jump in velocity. Big follow, need to see him.

Exit Velocity: 93 mph

Arm Velocity: 85 mph

Sixty-Yard Dash: 7.19
