Likely not a top-of-the-list prospect for the pro scouts in attendance, Harper caught my eye as an ideal prospect for any 4-year college program. Most sidearmers don’t fill up the zone with four pitches. Or have something that moves in every direction to the plate. Harper does. His 88-89 mph heater has deceptive life. It’s firm and lively. It darts opposite to what a typical sidewinder rides instead of dives. Pair this with a whiffle ball-like curve ball at 72-73 mph, a dirty breaker with slider action at 78-79 that he calls a cutter and good feel for a sinking changeup to his armside at 79-81, and you have the makings of a successful backend arm at any collegiate level.


Positional Profile: RHP/OF Loose levers, tough matchup on the mound.
Body: 6-foot-2, 170-pounds. Wiry build with room for added strength, athletic.
Delivery: Easy, tall and fall delivery, uses momentum throughout, short stride with toe striking closed, in-line to home, pop up at finish with leg swing to first, rhythm throughout.
Arm Action: RH. Arm plays long with full swing, loose throughout, arm whips quickly through a low 3/4 slot.
FB: T87, 84-86 mph. Late run with occasional sink when down, live through the zone. 
CB: 71-73 mph. 10/4 sweeping action, near fastball arm speed.
