    English is one of the youngest players in this year's draft class and he's a legit 6-foot-4, so there's a lot of reasons to believe that his best pitching is ahead of him. He has a 90-93 mph fastball that has touched 95 and every now and then he will break off a quality breaking ball, but everything is seen in flashes right now. He's far from a finished product and would likely need multiple years in the complex leagues if he signed out of high school. A Tennessee signee, English also has potential as an outfielder. He's a plus runner with power potential.
