Due to Rob Rasmussen’s signability, UCLA will get the chance to see Rob Rasmussen’s big curveball that helped him fan 200 hitters in his senior campaign. The Poly (Pasadena, Calif.) HS southpaw overshadowed his size (he stands at 5-foot-10, 160 pounds) with his pitchability. There also doubts on the competition he was facing, but he gained more attention when he struck out 20 of 21 in an out of conference contest with Glendale (Calif.) HS.
Rasmussen finished his season with a 12-0 record and only surrendered two earned runs in 85 innings. He also carried a 3.4 GPA in the classroom. He plans to major in business/economics.
