Vire has blossomed from a high ceiling 'project' arm into one of the most dominant pitchers in the state & a helium prospect for the upcoming MLB Draft. His 6-foot-6 frame has steadily added more size/mass and helped him not only reach higher velos up to 90-91 with his FB but also hold velo more consistently in the 87-89 range. The SL has continued to improve as well and has the chance to be a true out-pitch at the next level. With his size, leverage and release, Vire is an uncomfortable AB for opposing hitters. While BB can be problematic at times, the overall control does show improvement and he's able to off-set the freebies by racking up impressive strikeout numbers. Had a dominant senior year in 2021 (7 GS, 5-0, 0.56 ERA / .911 WHIP / 37.1 IP / 13 H / 3 ER / 21 BB / 74) and heads into the MLB Draft with quite a bit of positive momentum

6-foot-5, 180 pounds with an ultra projectable, wiry frame with long levers. Slightly closed off stance in the box. Stays upright with minimal bend in lower half. Lifts front foot as he drifts forward into landing. Hands shift to just below shoulder height as his stride foot gets down, allowing him to get barrel on plane early. Mostly line-drive contact during BP but did flash some lift to his pull-side. Stays tall in lower half thru contact. In the OF, adjusts footwork as needed. Capable of using long strides to cover ground but also shortened up when approaching the ball. Uses a side shuffle with some crow hop action to get into throwing motion. Works from a low ¾ slot with a loose, whippy arm. On the mound, works exclusively out of the stretch. Has some slight hesitation in delivery as he gets down the mound but it keeps his weight back and allows him to keep body control into landing. Should develop more consistency as he gets stronger. Front slide opens up nicely and allows him to have a clean path out over his front side to reach his target. Arm action stays compact and he avoids getting too long or wrapping the ball. Low ¾ release with aggressive hand speed out front. Overall, features some of the most upside of any arm in the state for his class
