At 6-foot-7 and 205 pounds, Schlact is a big prep pitcher, and while scouts differ on how much projection is left, they all agree there's more velocity to come. Schlact has shown an 88-91 mph heater while touching 92. Some scouts see a loose arm; others say he has more effort in his delivery than they would like, and that his body is fully mature. His slider is below-average, and he's used a split-finger pitch as well. His results haven't matched his stuff, leaving him available come the third round. His South Carolina commitment apparently isn't as daunting as some other commitments among the state's prep class.
