08/16/2020 - Official College Recruiting Membership - Salem (Roanoke), VA Jacob is a lean, athletic OF/LHP who has a promising future on the diamond. Foot speed is well above average as indicated by his 7.13 60 time. In the OF, defensive abilities are solid as he displays smooth / fluid actions. Feet are active as he works to get behind balls and plays with momentum to his target. Range is a plus as he reads well off the bat and covers a lot of ground. At the plate, he continues to shine through a squared setup. Hands are quick (91 mph exit velocity) and work through an aggressive swing path. He shows a feel for the barrel and makes consistent hard contact with power showing best to the pull side. On the mound, he shows a sound, repeatable delivery that allows his arm action to work free to the plate. Fastball showed a range of 69-72 mph. Breaking ball displays 2/8 shape with gradual break. He maintains arm speed on his changeup but throws too hard, resembling fastball. Stock on the mound will continue to improve as he builds more arm strength on the mound. With 2 years to further develop, Jacob has potential with time and room to progress his game.
