11/13/18: Committed to Oklahoma out of San Jacinto

Fall '18: Transferred from Rice to San Jacinto JC.

2020 DRAFT:Acker made a quick highlight during the shortened 2020 season with a no-hitter against LSU at the Shriners Hospitals for Children College Classic. It was the first no-hitter in the 20-year history of The Classic and the first time LSU had been no-hit in a nine-inning game in history. Acker completed his no-hitter with 11 strikeouts, one walk and two hit batters. A 6-foot-2, 190-pound right-hander with a loose, on-line delivery from high three-quarter slot, Acker sits 91-93 mph with great down angle on his fastball. He also features a mid-80's slider, a big breaking curveball ranging from 78-81 mph and an average, fading 84-86 mph changeup. Acker is polished with good command. He has great feel, locating his fastball while inducing numerous off-balance swings with the ability to mix all of his pitches. There isn't much ceiling to Acker's stuff, but he has a solid floor and the abilities for immediate success at the next level. After selection by the Diamondbacks in the 19th round out of San Jacinto JC, TX last June, look for his name to be called much earlier this time around.

3/1/20:Completed his no-hitter with 11 strikeouts, one walk and two hit batters. A 6-foot-2 190-pound right-hander, Acker was sitting 91-93 mph the majority of the day with a mid-80’s slider, a curveball ranging from 78-81 mph and an 84-86 mph changeup. He located his fastball well all game long and got numerous off-balance swings with his ability to mix all of his pitches. (T King)

11/13/18: Committed to Oklahoma out of San Jacinto

11/1/18:
Acker didn’t light up the radar gun with a fastball between 88-91 MPH. However, the right-hander did keep the ball down, with some sinking action, in the zone with the feel for command to both sides, especially the glove side. Throughout his 3.0 innings, Acker pounded the strike zone, and showed a four-pitch mix – an 82 MPH slider that generated swings and misses; feel for a changeup 79-82 MPH; and a curveball at 76-77 MPH.Most impressively, Acker pitched with an advanced feel for executing pitches and hitting spots. A former Rice pitcher, Acker should be one of the standouts on the mound for San Jacinto this season.
