    View Draft Report
    McGowin, a late-blooming Long Island native, will be the highest-drafted player in Savannah State history. He starred in the Atlantic Collegiate League for two seasons and ranked as the No. 2 prospect last summer. He's lean and lanky at 6-foot-3, 180 pounds, with wiry strength. He wore down over the course of the season, as he pitched Savannah State to its first Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference title with two wins in the league tournament, including a 144-pitch shutout in the title game on three days' rest. His 11 strikeouts in that game pushed him to 128, second in Division I and tops among draft-eligible players. McGowin's fastball has touched 95 mph but sits in the 89-93 range. His secondary stuff shows promise but remains raw. He flashed a plus slider in the fall, but this spring his curve and slider have blended together. He seldom throws a changeup, leading to modest feel for the pitch. Some clubs like McGowin in the first five rounds, while others see him as a better fit in the sixth to 10th round.
