Scouting Report

McElvain has had his eyes set on Vanderbilt for quite a while—he committed to the Commodores before he ever threw his first pitch in high school. It looks like there’s a good chance McElvain will get to Nashville because while he’s polished, his 87-91 mph velocity hasn’t really ticked up much. He throws an average 11-to-5 curveball that he spots well and shows confidence in. He has advanced control for his age. McElvain knows how to pitch, but scouts are inclined to let him prove his velocity can reach the low-90s over the next few years at Vandy.
