McBride is listed as 6 feet and might be closer to 5-foot-9, but his size won't prevent him from becoming a first-round pick. After all, he's lefthanded and throws 93-96 mph with life to match his velocity. His heavy fastball has exceptional action, as it both tails and sinks. He also has a hard breaking ball and a changeup, changes speeds and knows how to pitch. He has maintained his stuff throughout the spring, fanning 14 in seven innings in late May to clinch Screven County High's third consecutive state regional 2-A title. McBride is stocky but athletic and showed hitting ability as a first baseman. He's committed to Georgia, and scouts compare his body to that of former Bulldogs star Derek Lilliquist, though Lilliquist never threw as hard. While McBride isn't projectable, his stuff doesn't need to get any better--just more consistent--for him to succeed as a pro.
