BLACKLICK - Josh Timmerman and his 91 mile per hour fastball remains in limbo when it comes to his college baseball future.

The Licking Heights senior is yet to commit, with a Division II offer along with D-I preferred walk-on interest

“I’m also talking with Purdue Fort Wayne which wants me to come on a visit,” noted Tmmerman, who has had visits to Ohio Dominican, Penn State and Toledo. “I’m looking for the best baseball school possible with good academics. Obviously I’d like to go to a bigger school, but whatever is the best fit.”

At the Southern Ohio Uncommitted Senior Games a few months back, Timmerman had the Best Fastball while also being listed in the categories Most Projectable and Best Breaking Ball.

“Those that I’ve talked with like my athleticism on the mound,” Timmerman noted. “I’m not super big yet, so I’m also pretty projectable.”

At 6-2 and 165 pounds, the fourth-ranked uncommitted 2020 right-handed pitcher in Ohio sees a lot he can bring to a program.

“I’ve improved so much over the past year,” Timmerman pointed out. “I’ve put in so much work to get where I am today and I’ll continue to work hard over the next four years.

“I’m a competitive person that’s always working hard. I always want to be at the top. I understand that’s not always going to happen, but I work as much as I can to make it happen.”

The work has paid off when it comes to his fastball.

“This time last year I was sitting mid-70s,” the 76th-rated senior in the state said. “In school ball I was high-70s to low-80s, but then in summer ball it clicked and I was up to 90 four times.”

The radar gun reached 91 at the PBR Southern Ohio event, fittingly on his birthday.
