    View Draft Report
    A Texas state champion swimmer (50-meter freestyle) in high school, David took a big step forward in his fourth year of college ball (two years at McLennan (Texas) JC followed by two years at Northwestern State). He’s still wilder than is ideal, and inconsistent, but at his best, his combination of premium velocity—he sits 92-93 mph but has touched 97-98—and hard dive bomb of a curveball give him two pitches that should play in pro ball. David struck out 15.3 batters per nine innings this year, among the best in Division I. David’s control is well below-average and his long arm action makes it hard to repeat his delivery consistently. He struggles to get his arm on time with his lower half. David’s wildness (6.8 walks per nine innings this year) could keep him from being drafted, and he has two years of eligibility remaining, but his upside is enticing.
