5.20.16 - Illinois State commit. Ranked No. 55 in the Illinois 2017 class. 6-foot-1, 155-pound, wiry, projectable, right-handed pitcher with a high ceiling. Velocity and stuff has taken a step forward. Increased pitch-ability and flashed a firmer breaking ball in his start against Neuqua Valley. Slightly coiled delivery, some rhythm, works slightly across his body and finishes athletically. Clean, quick and loose arm action out of a high ¾ slot. Fastball flashed late life, thrown for strikes throughout, able to get in on right-handed hitters at times; sat mainly 86-88 mph, touching 89 multiple times and 90 once. Slider, 10/4 sweeping action, settled in, got better and more confident with it as the outing progressed; Velocity varied greatly depending on the count, 73-80 mph, more 77-80 mph with two strikes, occasionally flashing late action.

11.19.15 - Verbally committed to Illinois State.

Future Games 2015 - Wiry 6-foot-1, 155-pound right-handed pitcher features a strong arm that has a lot of potential. His fastball had been 86-88 mph at a previous PBR event, at the Future Games he was more 83-86 mph and touched 87. Even though his velocity was a tick down he flashed some tilt and arm-side-run on his fastball. Features a breaking ball that ranged between 70-74 mph. The breaking ball should tighten up if it is consistently thrown with fastball arm speed. Peplow also mixed in a change-up at 73-75 mph. Struck out one and induced a 4-6-3 double play in his two innings of work.
