A U of Utah commit, Sumner was off to a good start to his junior year, where in an early preseason tourney in St. George, I saw Sumner flash a potential big FB 87-93 and sit 89-91. Thereafter he was tender and shut things down shortly thereafter to have surgery on his elbow. Missing all of the summer and fall, Sumner is back and feeling good and healthy. The FB 87-90 at the Preseason All-State was firm with late hop through the zone and a high spin rate of 2601! The CB 75-77 sets him apart from other pitchers with a “elite” spin rate of 2840 with quick late TQ shape and biting depth. The FB/CB combination of high spin and late life to both pitches, is the best in the state to date. Look for even more gains to the FB velo as the spring unfolds and he gets his sea legs under him from the time off. One thing is for sure, Sumner is giving the Utes in 2023 a potential elite arm that has the frame and build to be a workhorse. 


An XL frame with a lean athletic build with long arms and a strong lower 1/2, Sumner has the type of frame, arm action and arm speed to carry a bit more. With a tall address, then taking a simple side step to start a flexible high kick delivery, he shows a drop and drive style, while getting into his legs in pounding FB’s downhill and into the bottom portion of the zone. The arm action that was over the top and producing FB’s in the 84-87 range last spring, took a jump in the summer as he lowered his arm slot to a TQ and his velo jumped to 86-89 and 88-91 at times. The CB 74-76 shows TQ tilt and proper spin. At times it backs up on him to LHH, but when he catches it right, it has tight late depth and is a swing and miss pitch. With 2 years of HS remaining, it will be interesting to see where his development takes him. For now it was enticing enough to receive an offer and commit to the U Utah. Definite high follow!
