9.5.15 - Physical, strong bodied 6-foot-1, 200-pound right-handed pitcher. Comes right after hitters with his fastball. Fastball was always around the zone, had life, fairly straight with occasional cutting action at times, ranging between 83-87 mph. Rhythm throughout his delivery, short-arm action from a high ¾ slot. Threw the final three innings allowing only two hits. Committed to Gonzaga.

Fastball showed late action, erratic arm side run at times, lively fastball, sat 85-87 mph early, touching 88 mph. Curveball played at 64-68 mph, slower breaking ball, occasionally slows arm action.

3/15/15- Gonzaga commit. 6-foot, 190-pound two-way player, sturdy frame with strength. Slight drop and drive style delivery, works online, squared landing and athletic finish. Arm action is long and loose, slot has gotten higher, more of a high ¾ slot now. Fastball has late action  through the hitting zone, sat 87-88 mph. Changeup is best secondary, has arm side run and sink, can pound the zone with it, deceptive out of hand, 71-74 mph. Curveball works on 11/5 plane, gradual action with slight arm deceleration, 63-67 mph. Offensively this from an open stance, short stride, smooth loading action, good balance. Compact approach and barrel aware, path is short to the baseball, gap to gap type hitter, occasional pop. 91 mph exit velocity from the tee. Defensively hands played soft, proper footwork, third base type. Arm action is similar to that on the mound, 84 mph across the diamond, plenty of arm to play the left side. 7.51 runner in the 60.
