6.9.18 - Verbally committed to Wabash Valley JC.
4.26.18 - Uncommitted senior. Large build, 6-foot-3, 225-pound right-handed pitcher. Hulking type build with delivery to match, wide rocker, head works over heels, finishes to first base side. Strong arm action, comes out with little effort out front, strong armed thrower, over the top slot. Fastball is mostly straight, occasional boring action at times, got swing and misses with FB mostly at the top of the zone, topped at 91 mph once, mostly 87-89 mph, still showed 89’s in the 5th, dipped to 83-85 mph at times out of the stretch. Curveball ranged wildly from 70-79 mph, varied in action early on, as he settled in showed best at 73-76 mph with late 12/6 action and ability to get swing and miss. Took breaking ball to another level in key situation against a tough LHH, worked 77-79 mph in that at-bat with hard tight action to get swing and miss.
2.19.18 - 6-foot-3, 230 pound, strong, athletic right handed pitching prospect. Drop and drive delivery, utilizes lower half very well and creates angle and tilt down in the zone, repeatable delivery. Directionally in line, slightly closed landing, occasionally falls to first base side, athletic finish. Regular effort throughout, long arm action, quick arm speed out front with an over the top slot. Fastball is heavy, creates downhill tilt, flashed hard sink when down in the zone, sat 88-90 mph, topped 91 mph. Curveball, 12/6 shape, breaks early out of the hand, ranged 73-79 mph. Slider, similar curveball shape, fluid arm speed, ranged 74-77 mph.
3.19.16 - 6-foot-2, 205-pound solidly built right-handed pitcher. Started on the mound for Marmion. Mainly went after the Chicago Christian lineup with a two-pitch mix. Fastball, worked straight, thrown for strikes, ranged between 80-82 mph, touching 84. Given temperatures in the low 40’s, showed really good feel for his curveball. Consistently threw it for strikes and in any count. Worked 12/6, 11/5 action.

7.15.15 - Strong build, right-handed hitter. Hits from a balanced set up, showed fast bat speed and an opposite field approach on two hard hit single through the right-side of the infield.
