Sam Carlson, RHP, Burnsville HS, MN
A Florida recruit, Carlson has a long, lean frame and projection at 6-foot-4, 200 pounds. He prepares to pitch with a purpose and has an imposing presence on the mound. He’s in control of the game at all times. His delivery is clean, directional and he lands with a closed toe on a strong front side. His arm action is short, clean and quick through a high-3/4 slot.
