A Tennessee recruit, Burns has a physical, durable frame and relatively easy delivery. Last summer, he topped out at 90 at the Tennessee Top Prospect Games. At the PBR Classic this June, he drew a crowd with reports of him sniffing triple digits and he didn’t disappoint, touching 100 in his first inning. He hit 98 in all four of his innings of his appearance and his last two pitches were 99 and 98. He sits comfortably in the mid 90s and the fastball jumps out of his hand with an average spin rate of 2400 and elite induced vertical break as it rides through the zone. He controls the zone well and threw 76 percent strikes in that outing, with his misses not missing by much. He mixes in a high-80s cutter and high-70s breaking ball. The cutter showed flat break with gyro spin at times. The breaking ball flashes two-plane break and swing-and-miss potential.


Burns came out firing bullets at 96-99 and against the third batter, he touched 100. After striking out two in the first, he settled into the mid 90s, but hit 98 in each of the four innings he logged and his last two pitches were 99 and 98. He kept his fastball around the zone and threw 76 percent strikes on the way to fanning eight. He didn’t allow a baserunner. While he used mostly fastballs to overpower hitters, he also mixed in a slider and curveball. The slider played more like a cutter, sitting 87-89 with flat action and minimal break. The curveball showed potential in the high 70s with sharpness.


Burns sky-rocketed his stock this summer becoming one of the biggest risers in the 2021 class moving from 61 to 12 (+49). At Top Prospect Games in June, Burns was dominant at 86-90 w/ power slider at 77-80.  Burns also showed good feel for changeup (80-84).  The Tennessee commit looks to build off a great summer in 2020.
