In a banner year for high school pitching in Virginia, Wells is the headlining lefthander. And while many of the other Virginia prep arms are on the smaller side, Wells has a large frame and lean, projectable build at 6-foot-5, 180 pounds. After showing mid-80s velocity and touching 89 mph last fall, he has been consistently around 87-91 mph this spring, touching 93. From a drop and drive delivery, he has a quick arm and the ball jumps out of his hand. His curveball shows plus potential and he can vary the shape of the offering. He rarely uses his changeup. He's athletic and throws enough strikes to project him to have average control. Wells will likely be in play in the top three to four rounds.
