    Yet another signee in a loaded Arkansas class, Hence elevated himself from being a solid prospect to a special one with an impressive summer. One of the younger prep prospects in the class (he turns 18 in August), Hence, who often goes by his nickname “Tink”, has a skinny frame (6-foot-1, 175 pounds) right now and a very fast arm. His fastball sits 91-93 mph and can brush 95, but it’s his feel for spinning breaking balls that helps him stand out. He throws a distinct slider and curveball and both show plus potential. His changeup shows average potential as well. With a loose arm and room to fill out, Hence is a pitcher who should keep getting better.
