Blount is a senior who spent his first three seasons at Tennessee when the program was bottoming out. The 6-foot-6, 220-pounder posted a 6.27 career ERA in three seasons but had some success as a junior in 2012, earning 10 saves. Then he was dismissed from the team in April 2012 and wound up at Southern Poly. At his best, he's an 88-91 mph sinkerballer who throws a lot of strikes, and he throws a slider and changeup for strikes, though both are below-average.
