UNC Wilmington commit. High waisted and projectable.  Athletic 6-feet-4, 167-pound frame.  Plenty of room to continue to add strength in the coming years.  Clean, athletic delivery with good tempo and rhythm. Average leg kick, rotates to load the front hip, releasing to an average stride, landing softly heel-to-toe, with the toe slightly open at times.  Quick, loose, arm works to a high-3/4 slot.  Athletic release. FB sat 87-89 topping at 90 with run.  Has feel for the zone showing some command as the bullpen lengthened.  Tight slider with sharp 11/5 break at 75-79.  Hard spin, with a chance to reach a high ceiling with the pitch.  Change-up  is the third pitch right now, sitting 80-82.  Hand slows slightly.  Some occasional downward action, creating misses down in the zone.

Listed at 6-foot-5 with a wiry, straight-line build.  Worked into the fifth inning striking out 4, but walking 6.  Fastball ranged 85-86, touching 88 in the first.  Velocity fell off, settling 82-84, still touching an 86 in his final inning.  Lacked consistent command of fastball.  Breaking ball ranged 73-75 with 11/5 arc and gradual break.  Works from a high-3/4 slot with easy arm effort.  Arm works long out of the glove, with some stiffness.  Tall at balance, from the wind-up, working in-line, finishing toward the 1st base side.  From the stretch, rushes forward with a slide-step affecting velocity and spin.  Threw a couple of change-ups at 78, as definite 3rd pitch.
