1/11/23 An NJCAA 3rd Team All-American in 2022, Purser was dominant as he compiled a won-loss record of 11-0 with a 1.70 ERA, to go along with 92 strikeouts to 30 walks in 74.1 IP. Pitching to wood bats in the mountain air, he limited opponents to a .196 batting average. With a big bodied, country strong build and a strong lower half that is similar in the look of a Mark Buerhle, the third-year sophomore shows deception, as he hides the ball well with a closed front side after breaking his hands and riding the slope with a downhill plane. His arm works well and features a three-pitch mix with a fastball in the 87-91 range, sitting comfortably at 88-89. He’s able to spot and locate to all four quadrants of the zone, and induces soft contact, while playing his home games on turf at an elevated mountain setting. His curveball has three-quarter tilt w/depth below the zone and can manipulate the pitch in creating sweeping action at times, creating chase help out of the zone to LHHs. The change of pace is a soft contact pitch vs RHHs with fading action in the zone.
