09/30/2018 - College PREP - Raleigh, NC Jacob is a tall, athletic RHP who has a tremendous future on the diamond. Delivery is sound/repeatable allowing his arm action to work free to the plate. He shows good tempo through a strong balance point and works in line to his target. Arm strength is outstanding as indicated by his top velocity of 86 mph. Fastball showed a range of 84-86 mph on a downhill plane with late life. Breaking ball displays 11/5 shape with late/sharp break. He maintains arm speed on his splitfinger with sinking action. Off speed stuff show as outstanding pitches that will get outs at the next level. Control is well above average as throws strikes with all his pitches. Stock on the mound will continue to increase as he builds more arm strength through a long toss program. At the plate, he shows a squared setup. Hands are quick (82 mph exit velocity) and work through a level swing path. He makes consistent contact with power showing best to the pull side. With 2 years to further develop, Jacob has big upside on the bump and will get looks from collegiate coaches with his abilities.
