By Matt Huck
Name: John Flowers
High School: Trinity Christian Academy
Height/Weight: 6-foot-2, 170-pound
Travel Team: Coastal Prospects
Ranking: No. 49 in PBR Florida Class of 2016, No. 287 in PBR Overall
Scouting Report: Uncommitted rising senior. 6-foot-2, 170 pound outfielder with a lean loose live athletic projectable body. High waisted with high hips. Easy athletic actions in outfield with a solid average ML arm. Has quickness in the bat with some crudeness but lacks strength. Is also a star football player. Ran a 6.75 60. Very athletic kid that will improve with reps and added strength. On the mound was 87-90 with a loose easy working arm at a high ¾ slot. Curve ball was 73-74 mph. Projectable athletic body. More velocity will come.
Outlook: Interesting uncommitted two-sport athlete who has offers from Colorado, Florida Atlantic, Missouri, North Carolina, and Utah for football. Still raw on the baseball field but very projectable arm on the mound working 87-90 mph with his fastball.
