At the plate used a tall set up with has hands back swinging with a smooth level cut using  a long finish. Drove the ball up the middle and to the pull side consistently.

6-foot-3, 175-pound two-way prospect. Sam is lean, athletic, two-way prospect. Possesses smooth actions in the outfield paired with an 89 mph throwing arm. At the plate he effortlessly barrels balls from a calm upright stance. On the mound he has a clean, fluid motion. Thrown from a high 3/4 angle his fastball sat 85-87 mph with good run, and breaking ball was sharp breaking at 71-76 mph. His out-pitch was his change up with great deception at 76-77 mph.

6-foot-3, 175-pound athletic, two-way prospect. Relaxed stance. Creates good separation and is explosive through contact. Works in a gap to gap approach while showing occasional pull side power. Bat exit speed was recorded at 87 mph. Active outfielder with center field ability. Moves well to the ball with strong footwork and glove actions. Aggressive crow hop with long and loose arm action create an 88 mph arm velocity. Explosive, over-the-top arm slot with aggression down through the baseball. Fastball explodes through the catcher's glove at 87-88 mph. Slider has small, tight spin at 71-74 mph. Straight changeup flashed some potential at 76-77. Gaining some rhythm and some balance throughout delivery will help gain command.

6-foot-2, 165-pound projectable two-way prospect. From the outfield he is aggressive coming to get the baseball and uses a good run through with 84 mph arm strength. Left-handed hitter that starts open and gets to even. Shows quick hands, and power to his pull side with 81 mph exit velocity. On the mound he goes primarily from the stretch. Slow tempo and speeds up at foot strike and tends to close himself off. Arm really works from a high-¾ slot with fastball sitting 81-83 mph with occasional cut to it. Throws a late breaking curveball at 64 mph with 1/7 tilt. Showcased a solid changeup at 66-69 mph with sink.

2020 DRAFT:Few players boosted their prospect status in the four-week season more than Weatherly. After showing up at Clemson as an athletic two-way talent, Weatherly posted a 6.64 ERA as a freshman in 2018, with as many walks as strikeouts (17). He took on a bigger role in the Clemson bullpen as a sophomore, posting a 3.38 ERA in 29.1 innings, but he walked more than a batter per inning (30 BB against 46 K). Weatherly took a big step forward in the fall; in our October look, he attacked the zone at 89-92 with a swing-and-miss slider at 78-80 and a dramatically improved 79-81 changeup that also showed bat-missing potential. This spring, Weatherly figured out how to command his electric fastball (which bumped 95-96) and his devastating slider, and he shined in the Friday starter role, going 2-0, 0.79 with 43 strikeouts against 14 walks in 22.2 innings. That performance moved him into legitimate top two round consideration.
