Having only seen on TV previous to this look in Princeton, WV, the 6-foot-3, 205-pound lefty was impressive in all areas. He repeated his delivery with average effort and clean arm action from a high slot. His arsenal includes three weapons to miss bats. Whisenhunt worked both sides with a 2300-2400 rpm downhill fastball that sat 92-93 mph throughout his three inning, 39-pitch start. As effective as his heater can be, his separator is an out pitch changeup. It’s a plus pitch thrown with fastball arm speed and missed bats at 83-85 mph showing late dive and tail. He also flashed a low-80s, high-spin (2600s) breaking ball to complete his arsenal. It was an average grade pitch on this look with the velocity, shape and spin to become a ground ball/soft contact offering more than a bat misser. With consistent improvement throughout his college career and a 2021 spring season where he posted a 6-2, 3.77 ERA with 79 strikeouts in 62 IP, Whisenhunt has positioned himself for strong consideration in the first round next summer.

East Carolina commit.  Physical presence in an athletic frame at 6-foot-4, 185 pounds.  Dual prospect with a high ceiling on the mound and strength present in the box.  Left handed pitcher was down a little from some earlier outings in the summer, sitting 83-86.  Hard, sweeping breaking ball works from a similar slot as the fastball at 76.  Long, loose arm swing to a high-3/4 slot.  Quick hand and athletic delivery.  Smooth through the repeatable delivery, the arm works without much effort.  
Offensively he works from the left side using an open setup.  Smooth back in his load using a small leg kick, getting his lower half through the ball.  Above average speed with barrel whip.  Impressed in batting practice showing power potential, driving balls to all fields.  Fluid swing with his exit velocity peaking at 97 mph.  Plays athletic at first base with soft hands and fluid feet.  Long arm action, with carry to his throws topping at 86 mph across the diamond.  Recorded a 7.37 in the 60-yard dash.

Average frame at 6-foot-3, 185 pounds.  High-3/4 slot, with some stiffness in the front side.  Falls to the 3B side on finish, lacking some backside action.  Fastball ranged 78-83 early, ramping up to 84-86, and touching 87 with occasional arm side run late in his outing.  Long arm action, works in one piece with average arm speed.  Velocity jump coincided with better tempo and sync in the delivery in the 3rd inning.  Bereaking ball ranged 73-75 with a hard 2/8 tilt.  At times gradual and sweepy, as the fastball firmed, so did the breaker.
