    Godley has been an important part of head coach Dave Serrano's reconstruction project at Tennessee. He transferred in after his freshman season at Spartanburg (S.C.) Methodist JC and served as a middle reliever for a year before becoming the team's No. 1 starter under Serrano in 2012. He was a workhorse as a senior, going 5-7, 3.49 with 108 innings and six complete games. Godley throws strikes with his fastball and has proved durable at 6-foot-3, 245 pounds. His fastball sits 88-90 mph and he fills up the bottom half of the strike zone. His curveball is fringe-average and flashes better. His changeup was a solid-average to plus pitch in 2012 but backed up in 2013 as his curve improved. Godley hit 95 mph as a reliever and probably fits better in that role as a pro.
