Scouting Report

8.9.17 - 6-foot-5, 185-pound, lanky, right-handed pitcher, highly-projectable frame. On the mound, long, loose, athletic arm action, generates arm speed, high ¾ slot, easy effort. Tall and fall delivery, smooth rhythm, lands toe-open. Fastball, mostly straight, flashed run, commanded, 85-87 mph. Slider, 10/4 shape, 71-72. Changeup, sink action, down in the zone, 76-77. One of the top unsigned senior arms in Illinois.

OUTLOOK:

The highly-projectable right-handed pitcher finished the 2017 season as the ace of the Wildcat staff. Brown was named 1st team All Big 12 as he struck out 61 in 36.1 innings with a 1.54 ERA in 2017. This August Brown was one of the top arms at the Central Illinois Open and has drawn the interest of some Division I programs. Brown is currently the highest ranked 2018 still on the market in Illinois.
