A lefthanded high school pitcher consistently throwing in the low-90s would typically draw constant attention from every major league scouting director. However, a high price tag and a strong commitment to play baseball at Tulane has made House unsignable, keeping most teams away. House has an above-average fastball, with a slider and curveball that are projected to be at least average. Favoring Mike Hampton, House is 6-foot-1 and 200 pounds, and he's athletic on the mound. Similar to Hultzen, after three years in college, House is expected to be an impact draft prospect. A competitor on the mound, House struck out 20 batters in a game at the end of his junior year. He also won a swimming state championship in 2006.
