    Gough emerged as one of the top prep pitchers in the 2022 class at remote Heritage (Romoland, Calif.) High and transferred to national prep power JSerra (San Juan Capistrano, Calif.) High this spring to raise his profile. He pitched limited innings early in the year and missed time with an injury, but he returned to record critical saves in the CIF semifinals and finals to help JSerra win its first section title. He then struck out all five batters he faced at the draft combine in San Diego to continue his late momentum. A 6-foot-2, 200-pound righthander, Gough has a fast arm and a solid feel for throwing strikes. His fastball sat 88-91 mph for most of the season but ticked up to 92-94 mph with high spin rates by the end of the year. He mostly dominates with his fastball but also has a full complement of secondaries. He has a low-70s curveball that gets swings and misses as well as a harder variation in the upper-70s. He also has a low-80s changeup he favors as he primary secondary pitch. Gough throws everything for strikes and has a chance to be a well-rounded starter. He is committed to Oregon State but could get drafted high enough to sign with his late performance.
