Isaiah Thompson, LHP/OF, Sacred Heart-Griffin, 2021
Currently ranked No. 26 in the Illinois’ 2021 class. 6-foot, 170-pound, athletically-built, left/left, two-way prospect. Started on the mound and led off for Sacred Heart. Offensively, open setup, slight pre-pitch rhythm and stride works back to square. Stays short to the ball, quick hands, flat through the zone. Present bat-to-ball skills, consistently finds the barrel and flashed sneaky juice. Finished 0-for-3 with a walk. Lined out sharply to first base and flew out deep to center field. On the mound, works from the stretch-only. Simple, repeatable delivery, works on-line, lands front-toe closed, hides  and minimal use out of lower half. Arm works quick and athletic out of a ¾ to high ¾ slot. Fastball, plays straight, slight cut when going to his glove side; sat 82-83 mph throughout, touched 84. Mixed in two different breaking balls throughout. Went to his slider early, 2/8 shape, thrown aggressively, feel, 74-76 mph. Curveball, 1/7 shape, more vertical depth, tight spin, 72-73 mph. High-follow 2021 prospect.
