3/16/14 Illinois commit. 6-foot-2, 185-pound right handed pitcher, solid sturdy frame, athletic build. Delivery is easy and repeatable, tall and fall approach, works directionally. Arm action is clean, high ¾ arm slot, loose arm action. High pitchability guy. Fastball sat at 82-84 mph, we’ve previously seen up to 87 mph, fastball had sink and knowledge of the zone. Curveball is 11/5 shape, 71-72 mph, also showed advanced feel for the pitch. Changeup has excellent feel with command, near fastball arm speed, flashed sinking action, 74-76 mph. Meissner is one of the top pitchability guys in his class showing the ability to command multiple pitches to both sides of the plate.

8/4/13 - Meissner was the first Midwest Future Game prospect to make a college commitment as the 6-foot-3, 175-pound right handed pitcher committed to Illinois just days after the event. Meissner looked sharp in game action touching 87 mph with his fastball and featuring an advanced curveball at 69-72 mph. Meissner looks to have the typical pitchers build that will withstand plenty of innings at the next level. His solid lower half and wide shoulders can carry additional mass and velocity and he matures. Obviously a high level prospect, Meissner will be interesting to follow over the rest of his high school career as he prepares for the next level.

Solid contact, repeatability, 81 mph exit velocity from the tee.
