Listed at 6-foot-6, 220 pounds, Cusick is a strong, physical righthander who received positive reviews for remaking his body over the winter. Cusick's fastball has touched 97 mph in the past, although he more regularly sits in the 92-94 mph range. He shows feel for a slider, although the pitch remains inconsistent. Cusick's control is currently below-average and his overall feel to pitch is lacking. He has a starter's build, but scouts see him more as a reliever right now. He is committed to Wake Forest, where developing his offspeed offerings and improving his command should be his primary focuses.
