Willis just might be one of the bigger pop-up high school arms in this year’s draft. He missed last summer’s showcase season due to ulnar decompression surgery but has since made up for lost time during his senior high school season. The tall, strong-framed Willis throws a fastball from 89-96 mph, sitting 93, and it’s already regarded as a plus pitch. He’s also more advanced than many high school pitchers his age, with feel to pitch, good arm action and average or better secondary pitches. An 80-83 mph slider is his best pitch, a future plus offering. A 72-75 mph curveball needs work but with Willis’ athleticism it has a good chance to get at least close to average. He infrequently uses an 85 mph changeup, so improving that pitch will be needed in his development. Delivering his pitches with average to above-average arm speed and a balanced delivery, he gets good extension and finish. He’s more of a control-over-command type of pitcher now. Willis has a commitment to Minnesota, but it’s likely he gets drafted high enough to forego college ball, with the only cause for concern being his injury history.
