An immensely projectable righthander, Williams is a 6-foot-6, 190-pound Vanderbilt commit out of IMG Academy in Bradenton, Fla. Williams throws from the third base side of the rubber and gets good angle against righthanded hitters with a high, three-quarter arm slot. He worked mostly in the low 90s throughout the summer, but could easily see a jump in velocity thanks to a fast arm and plenty of room to continue filling out physically. Williams’ low- to mid-70s breaking ball ranged from an 11-to-5 break to having more of a natural, three-quarter bend, depending on the event. At East Coast Pro, the pitch showed plenty of horizontal and vertical movement, and he successfully used it as a backdoor offering against lefthanded batters. Williams also worked in a 78-83 mph changeup with solid fading action at times.
