FB 87-91, SL 74-75 with sharp, late bite at 74-75. 
2019 RHP Justin Barnes (Klein Oak HS) has been committed to Louisiana-Lafayette for a year now and is currently ranked No. 33 in TX. The right-hander works from a ¾ slot with a long arm swing. Athletic, repeatable, tall-and-fall delivery, the ball comes out clean on his fastball and has good arm side life at 86-89, mostly 88-89. Slider has short, tight, late break at 75-76. Worth noting, Barnes also threw 96 from the outfield and he is a two-way player. With the natural athleticism, amount of strikes, and ability to spin it, Barnes should be an impact arm right away at the collegiate level.
The 6-foot-1, 180-pound, right-hander showed a strong, quick arm stroke from a ¾ slot with his velocity ranging from 86-90 mph. The ball explodes out of his hand with life on his fastball. He throws a hard slider for strikes with tight spin, late bite, and 10-4 shape at 77-78 mph. Barnes showed all-around strength, throwing 91 mph from the outfield with outstanding carry, and posting an exit velocity of 91 mph. The right-handed hitter starts from a balanced stance, has smooth rhythm and uses a low-hovering leg kick, his hands stay back as he lands with leverage and transfers his weight through contact. Barnes drove the ball to the pull side gap during batting practice, showing good power for his class. He ran a 7.15 60 yard dash.

6-foot-1, 180-pound frame. Works from ¾ slot with long, quick arm action. Athletic delivery with good hip turn as he gets down the mound, solid ability to repeat this move from windup and stretch. Fastball ranged from 81-84 with some arm-side run and sink. Threw one slider at 75 mph with 10-4 slurve-type action. Barnes also threw well from the outfield posting 86, 89 and 90 mph during the workout. He ran a 7.3 60-yard dash.
