Notes

3/16/24

Uncommitted. Lean and projectable 6-foot-3, 175-pound frame, high waist with more in the tank. Got the nod for the Ironmen and threw it well over his 3.2 innings of work, allowing just one earned run over the outing. The right-hander cruised with his fastball in the 80-82 mph range with heavy sinking action, working it to both sides of the plate. He also showed some feel in his 11/5 breaking ball, playing at 71-74 mph to pair off the fastball, flashing depth and sharp action at times.

Senior RHP Jake Branch is another arm that showed well at this past summer’s Illinois State Games. Listed at 6-foot-3, 175-pounds, the right-hander wields a fastball in the mid-80s with heavy movement to his arm-side. He also has a dynamic curveball/changeup duo to pair off his fastball and keep hitters guessing.
