07/29/2017 - Under Armour All-America Game, Powered by Baseball Factory
Standing at 6 foot 5 on the mound with long arms and legs, Braxton seems to release each pitch from right on top of the hitter. Combine that with his low 90s fastball with life and it helps to explain why hitters have such a difficult time against him. Add in a sharp two-plane breaking ball and a developing change, and you have the ingredients for a quality starter at higher levels. Braxton is also a record-setting wide receiver on the football field, hauling in 104 catches for 2,090 yards and 37 TDs last season alone. This premium athlete is committed to Baylor.

Delivery is sound / repeatable as he shows good tempo through a strong balance point, allowing his arm action to work quick and free to the plate. Arm strength is at a pro level as indicated by his top velocity of 93 mph. Fastball shows a range of 86-93 mph with arm side run on a downhill plane. Breaking ball displays 11/5 shape with late break. He maintains arm speed on his changeup, showing a feel for with arm side run. Off speed stuff is tremendous and will get outs at all levels. Command / control is outstanding as he locates well to both sides of the plate. Braxton has a tremendous upside on the mound and will get looks from the top collegiate coaches and pro scouts with his abilities on the mound.
