Super 60 - 2.4.18
Ole Miss recruit. 6-foot-4, 205-pound left-handed pitcher with lean, athletic build and plenty of room for continued physical development. Considerable upside in the frame and athleticism. Works from a high-3/4 slot, short, quick takeaway in the back, hides it well. Works downhill, creates angle, some deception in low-effort delivery: short-strider, opens front side early with small ninja-kick nearing foot strike. Works fast. Short quick arm action, lacks extension out front. Fastball sat 86-87 mph with darting arm-side life in the strike zone. (We've seen more velocity in the past). Per FlightScope data, Hill registered the two lowest fastball spin rates (1,550 rpm and 1,556 rpm) and seven of the top 10 (all under 1,850), which would indicate that he's a sinkerballer, though that's not how the ball was behaving. Curveball flashed depth and sharpness at times, but inconsistent in action at 71-72 mph. Also threw a splitter that ranged between 74-76 mph. Overall, with more refinement, Hill should develop into a high-interest draft prospect in the coming years.

5.23.17 All-State Game
Hill is a 6-foot-4 195-pound left-hander with a large frame and an athletic build. He is an advanced athlete with a quick arm. He pitches from an H ¾ arm slot with a short arm action with quick arm speed. He repeats his tall and fall delivery with little effort. He uses consistent rhythm, however it is a choppy with a slight pause with his arm action on the backside. He works with his shoulders uphill and finishes upright. His fastball was located down in the strike zone at 89-91 mph, his curveball showed depth and 1/7 action thrown 72-75 mph with late break. He threw his changeup 69-70 mph with erratic command. Overall Hill is an advanced athlete with a quick arm and an advanced breaking ball.


Hill is a 6-foot-4 left-hander with a large frame and an athletic build. He pitches from a  H 3/4 arm slot with a loose arm. He uses a simple repeated delivery. He does not use a distinct balance point which causes his arm to lag behind at times. His fastball works 83-86 mph and shown the ability to throw up to 88 mph. He throws a curveball and changeup as his secondary pitches with limited command. Overall Hill has a very projectable frame and arm action. He projects to throw hard in the near future.
