A key piece of a strong UCLA recruiting class, Hockin stands out for his feel for pitching and command, evoking former Bruins ace Adam Plutko. Like Plutko, he has a physically mature frame that lacks projection, but he has run his fastball up to 94-95 mph at times this spring, pitching comfortably at 88-92 with heavy bore. His 6-foot-3, 195-pound frame is durable, and his delivery is clean and balanced. He has the makings of three solid offspeed pitches, with no wipeout offering. His best secondary pitch is a low-80s slider that flashes slightly above-average, and he also shows an average curveball and an average changeup. Hockin throws all of his pitches for strikes and has a chance to be a mid-rotation workhorse down the line.
