07/29/2017 - Under Armour All-America Game, Powered by Baseball Factory
Ethan seems to be playing catch on the mound, yet his fastball lives in the mid-90s - touching 97 mph. He throws from a 3/4 arm slot with the ball exploding out of his hand, making it particularly difficult on right-handed hitters. He also mixes in a change and throws all pitches from a clean, quick arm stroke. Add it all together, and you have one of the top prospects in the entire 2018 class. He is committed to Vanderbilt and fits the mold of the high-level pitchers that they continue to recruit.

Ethan is an athletic RHP who is a top prospect on the mound. 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. Fastball shows a range of 95-97 mph with arm side run and sink. Breaking ball displays 12/6 shape with late break and is an outstanding pitch that will get outs. He maintains arm speed on his changeup, showing a plus feel for pitch with arm side run. Command / control is tremendous as he locates well to both sides of the plate. Ethan has a tremendous upside on the mound with the makings of a top draft pick in 2018.
