    After showing solid stuff but topping out in the low 90s for most of last summer, Wolf entered the spring solidly out of Day 1 consideration and behind a number of other Texas prep pitchers. That evaluation quickly changed, as Wolf came out this spring with added strength—he’s listed at 6-foot-2, 165 pounds but is likely heavier than that now—and started pitching consistently in the mid-90s and touched as high as 97 mph. In addition to his much-improved fastball velocity, Wolf spins a nasty curveball that looks like a big league breaking ball and is a surefire plus offering. The pitch settles in the mid- to upper 70s, while Wolf also throws a mid-80s changeup that could use some refinement. While there are still some command questions with Wolf, he has also improved in that regard. Those who know him are impressed with his dedication to his craft on the mound and his understanding of what he’s trying to accomplish when he’s on the rubber. Previously, Wolf would have been a safe bet to reach campus at Texas A&M, and he is expected to be a reasonably tough sign. But now, he’s pitching at a clip that might push him into Day 1 consideration and making a jump straight into pro ball more likely.
