Ligon is a 6-foot-3, 193-pound righthander committed to Miami who showed off some of the better control in the high school class last summer, with a solid three-pitch mix to go with it. He has a fastball that has been up to 95-96 mph at its best, but mainly sat in the lower 90s this spring. Scouting directors thought he had one of the better changeups of the prep class—it’s a 78-84 mph pitch that he throws with conviction, with solid fade and tumbling life and he shows advanced feel to land it already. He also has an upper-70s curveball that has solid depth and big, 11-to-5 shape. Ligon has plenty of athleticism and could increase his fastball velocity as he fills out his frame.
