Scouting Report



Long-limbed, lean 6-foot-2, 160-pound build on the mound. TCU commit. The projectable left-handed pitcher delivers from a rocker-step with rhythm that gets out front. Long, whippy arm action with a high-¾ arm slot. Fastball sat 88-90 mph with solid, late life to his arm-side and control, spinning at 2061 rpm. Big, high-spin curveball showing 1/7 break at 72-73 mph, avg. 2437 rpm. Changeup shows solid late down action low in the zone at 79-81 mph. Offensively, Larson uses his lower half and body well, showcasing a quick line-drive swing from the left side, barreling balls throughout his round of BP. 92 mph exit velocity. In the outfield, a fluid fielder that plays through the ball making 92 mph throws with carry and accuracy. Ran a 7.57 60-yard dash.




Tall, lean frame that carries loads of athleticism anywhere on the field. The LHH showed power potential to all fields with multiple balls hit with authority to the pull side and opposite field gap. Although he didn't pitch on the weekend, he still impacted the game with the bat and proved his Two-Way potential for the future. Follow 2024. 




Lean, athletic infielder that has solid fielding actions and carry on throws from first base. The LHH incorporates his lower half well into his swing with some power to his mid/pull side, including a ground-rule double to RF. TCU Commit.




Long, lanky frame with room to add strength. Long, whippy arm action from the left side. Closed out the game for Iowa Sticks McCool with a 82-85 T86 mph fastball with life. Consistently landed a big 1/7 curveball for strikes at 65-66 mph. Lots of projectability and a high follow arm in 2024 class. Uncommitted.
