Scouting Report

An athletic righthandeder, Hill was also seen as a solid quarterback prospect in high school, although he broke his right collarbone while on the football field during his senior season. Prior to the fall, Hill had put himself on teams' radars with several impressive performances, including an outing at the East Coast Pro showcase where he sat in the low 90s with life to his fastball. He also showed one of the better changeups at the event, a pitch in the 78-82 mph range that he threw with fastball arm speed and got multiple swings and misses. With a 6-foot-4, 215-pound frame, Hill offers some projection thanks to his athleticism and two-sport background, and he also showed impressive feel to pitch. His breaking ball has also looked better this spring than last summer. Teams will be more concerned with his arm following the collarbone injury, as some scouts have noted that it impacted his armspeed, but the Louisiana State commit has still been up to 94-95 mph at times this spring.
