02/10/2008 - College PREP - Houston, TX Jarad is an athletic player and is tall and strong. Although he also plays SS with above average ability, soft hands, easy arm actions and exchange, he is more suited for the mound at this point because of offensive game. On the mound, shows a strong arm with velocities in the upper 80's. CB is well above average with a loose live arm action. Arm speed remains the same throughout off speed pitches. Can use some mechanical work to increase ability but the potential is there. Swing has bat speed and good lower half rotation but needs to let the ball travel and extend through the ball to increase power potential. Jarad is an interesting player and should get a lot of attention during his senior year.
