Director of Scouting, PBR of NC

PBR continues to be a go-to source of information for college coaches and pro scouts. With advanced analytics and video on a players profile page, it allows them to get a feel for a prospects ability and track their progress. In an unprecedented year where college coaches were not allowed on the road to recruit PBR was a valuable resource for them to keep recruiting. There were over 10 million player profile views during 2020 on the PBR site. We will begin to highlight the the top ten most viewed player profiles in the state of North Carolina.

A draft follow while at East Mecklenburg High School in 2018, he attended San Jacinto JC where his velocity continued to climb.

Scouting Report

 

 

2020 DRAFT:�A South Carolina recruit, Little does not resemble his name. At an imposing 6-foot-8, 245 pounds he can run his live-actioned fastball up to 100+ mph and will sit 96-98 with improving control. He also mixes in a tilted low-80s slider with some depth, but projection remains for it to become a consistent average ML pitch. He pitches with an athletic tempo to his delivery through hand break, slightly stabbing his arm behind before driving violently down the mound. There are some moving parts and long limbs for him to sync up, but he creates a tough at-bat for anyone in the box and has plenty of projection remaining. Little battled back problems during his sophomore season at San Jacinto, limiting him to just nine innings pitched with three walks and 17 strikeouts, but there aren't too many left-handed arms with his size and stuff. Look for him to be considered in the top three rounds, but his signability will ultimately determine if/when he is selected this summer.
