Summer season means that recruiting for most college programs is about to shift into second gear. Coaches travel the land high-and-low in their attempt to find future players to better their roster.  As a player, this can be a nerve racking time.  There is no need to panic, as coaches will be out to see you play.  Control the controllable things and work on your game. 

PBR Maryland will be doing features throughout the summer highlighting players that have the ability to play at the college level.  Today we focus on Jaret Bennett, and 2016 left-handed pitcher from Federalsburg, MD on the Eastern Shore.

Scouting Report

Jaret Bennett6-foot-1 185-pound LHP/1B athletic frame.  As a position player, Bennett showed fluid footwork with average feet and a quick exchange.  He made accurate and consistent throws from his high ¾ arm slot at a velocity of 76 mph. At the plate gets a little long at times with his swing with good balance and smooth load.  Has a level barrel that stays in the zone with an exit velocity of 77 mph.  Bennett projects well on the mound.  Pitching from a high ¾ arm slot, he showed good athleticism in his delivery and a fluid rhythm.  His free and quick arm displayed a velocity of 84 mph maxing out at 86 with run and downhill action.  He threw a 2/8 breaking ball with near fastball arm speed and late break. Throws a split with gradual break at 68 mph and showed feel for a changeup with late fade.  Breaking ball has potential to be power pitch.  The very projectable pitcher displays early flashes of being a power arm from the left side and potentially a two way talent.
