McGarry, committed to Virginia, has an older brother Matt who pitches at Vanderbilt. Most scouts expect him to be very difficult to sign as he's academically oriented. However, he still was the best of a bad year for preps in Northern California. He has good size at 6-foot-2, 175 pounds, with some present strength but more to come. He's reached 93-94 mph with his fastball at times, sitting in the 88-92 range, with long levers and a three-quarters arm slot that he repeats relatively well. His best present pitch was a sharp, if at times slurvy, curveball. He throws it with good power at up to 77 mph, and it earns above-average grades with a chance to be plus in the future. McGarry's changeup is a distant third pitch at present.
