    A former basketball player from a small town of less than 5,000 people, Fulencheck was not a mainstay on the showcase circuit last summer and made his first significant national appearance in the fall at the Perfect Game World Wood Bat Championship. The athletic Fulencheck has improved since then and has had a strong spring, standing out in what is possibly the worst draft class for the Lone Star State in the last decade. He has a quick arm and is a power pitcher with a heavy 89-93 mph fastball that has touched 95. His groundball-producing fastball plays up beyond its pure velocity because of its life, arm-side run and sink from a high three-quarters arm slot. While his delivery features some effort, he shows the makings of strike-throwing ability. Scouts like that when Fulencheck misses his spot he often misses down in the zone. His top secondary pitch is a mid-80s slider that shows at least average potential. The progress of his changeup will be a key part of his development. The 6-foot-4, 185-pounder has a good pitcher's build with long extremities, room to get stronger in his upper body and a strong lower half. He has committed to Dallas Baptist.
