The West Virginia commit was dominant like his counterpart Frey, and struck out ten batters over 5 2/3 innings pitched. Hampton’s fastball touched 86 mph, ranged between 83-85 mph, with run and he hit his spots all game long. His best secondary offering was his curveball, which sat between 68-72 mph with a 1/7 shape, bite, and was thrown for strikes throughout his outing. Hampton also threw a changeup with fastball arm speed at 76-77 mph. He is also a high follow in the Wisconsin 2020 class.
