    Young is one of the more projectable arms on the Texas junior college circuit this year. A second-year freshman, the Oklahoma State commit burst onto the scene during the fall TX/NM All-Star game sitting 94-96 mph in two innings of work while flashing a sharp 76-79 mph slurve. Using a slower, deliberate windup, the righty quickens his delivery at separation and attacks with a long but quick arm action. He has a three-quarters arm slot. Young struck out 110 while walking 27 in 79.2 innings. The polished command and feel for pitching points to Young starting long term. He has plenty of remaining projection.
