4.4.15 - 6-foot-2, 200-pound RHP, strike thrower. Pitches mainly off cutter/slider in 74-75 mph range. Shows the ability to add and subtract from it, at times flashes a 66-71 mph curveball. Rarely throws fastball, clocked in 79-81 mph range. Won game one with three scoreless innings, came in relief in game two, giving up game winning walk-off homer to right-center, but inning extended due to an infield error. Strike thrower and competitor who is Central’s ace.
2.15.15 - Strong bodied, 6-foot-2, 200-pound right-handed pitcher. Delivery works slighty across his body, closed toe landing, uses slide step from the stretch. Arm action is long, firm, high draw, average arm speed, high ¾ slot. Fastball is mostly straight, 78-79 mph, topped out at 80 mph. Curveball has 11/5 shape, slurve action, 67-68 mph. Changeup showed fade, gets underneath, 70-72 mph.
10.21.14 - 6-foot-2, 200-pound right-handed pitcher ranked No. 85 in Illinois’ 2016 class impresses with sinking fastball/cutter combination. Fastball sat 81-82 mph with sinking action from long ¾ arm slot, tall-and-fall delivery, shoulders close off, throws across his body, lands closed on ball of foot, adds to deception and makes sinker/cutter tough to pick up for hitters. Glide steps from the stretch. Lands 62-66 mph curveball with gradual 11/5 break for strikes. 71-73 mph changeup had some sink, cutting action at times. Cutter looks more like a slider in the 71-73 mph range, and is go-to pitch. Threw more strikes from the stretch, and cutter/slider showed later action from the stretch as well.
6/4/14 - Ranked No. 119 in Illinois’ 2016 class.  6-foot-1, 190-pound solid pitcher’s frame.  Finished 9-1 on the season.  Delivery is smooth, balanced throughout and repeats well, with good alignment towards home.  Some length in back of high 3/4 long loose arm action.  Fastball ranged 81-82 mph early, and 79-81 in latter innings.  Slurvy breaking ball occasionally had 11/5 action, occasionally had sweeping slider action thrown from 69-73 mph.  Threw breaking ball first six pitches of the game, and leaned on it heavily throughout the outing, rarely going to fastball.  Changeup shows good arm side action at 72-75, also used sparingly.
1.19.14 - 6-foot-1, 190-pound two-way player, build shows strength, projects better on the mound. Delivery is smooth with regular effort, high ¾ arm slot, long loose arm action. Shows feel for three pitches. Fastball features well above average run, showed the ability to command the pitch, 81-82 mph. Curveball has 11/5 shape, excellent action, flashed sharp bite, 69-72 mph.

8/7/13 - 6-foot-1 190-pound, strong, athletic pitcher with good frame and projectability.  Delivery showed some rhythm with a long arm that throws from a high ¾ arm slot.  Fastball was 78-79 mph and showed some arm side run.  Maintained fastball arm speed on the changeup, showing feel for the pitch with flashes of sink and fading action at 65-69 mph.  Had some feel for a curveball, throwing it with a gradual 11/5 action at 63-67 mph.  At the plate he has a wide setup with a short stride and maintained his balance through the swing.  Showed standard bat speed with a flat path that consistently produced line drives and an exit velocity of 84 mph off a tee.  From the outfield his throws flashed accuracy with a velocity of 74 mph.  He ran a 7.36 60.
