Branon Johnson is a 2005 RHP/3B/C from Sachse, TX. Johnson is very similar to another top Waco prospect, Evan Bigley, in that his tools play very well both as a player and as a pitcher. We’re stronger behind Johnson as a position player right now, and think he might be better served by just concentrating on playing. On the mound, Johnson throws from a complex side step delivery and uses his quick arm to generate an 87-90 mph fastball with some cutting action. He didn’t show much feel for a curveball or change up during two separate outings. A couple of things jumped out about Johnson as a player. He is relatively new to switch hitting, but showed us an excellent swing from the left side. It’s tension free and effortless with very good bat speed. Johnson develops similar bat speed from the right side, but it’s more of an effort swing. Overall, Johnson took the best batting practice at the showcase, really centering the ball well and showing his power potential. Defensively, Johnson lists catching as his third position, but the thought of having a switch-hitting catcher with power and plus arm makes Johnson a potential excellent pro prospect right now rather than "just" an excellent Division I college prospect. He’s raw in his receiving skills due to lack of repetitions, but all the tools are there. As a third baseman, Johnson’s defensive skills are very solid and play at the highest levels including pro ball. He's a big time prospect!

Branon Johnson is an outstanding 2005 pitcher with a potential Big League arm. He has a strong 6 foot 175 pound body and good mechanics on the hill. His wind-up is balanced and his delivery includes a powerful leg drive and strong high three-quarters arm slot. He slightly resembles Roger Clemens in his actions and delivery and has already shown an 88 mph fastball with a hard 12-6 curve. His curve was clocked between 71-74 mph and showed average Big League quality at times. His fastball was never straight showing either a cutting or tailing action and a few with sink. The life on his fastball is late, avoiding the sweet spot on any bat he faced and there is no question that he is a top follow pitcher for the 2005 class. He even showed some pop in his bat and good looking actions and arm strength at 3B, but the ability he has on the mound puts him in a select group of right-handers. Needs to be followed very closely for '05.

Good "05" arm. Balanced hitting approach and a nice swing even though a bit long. He can hit! Better yet, he's a pitching prospect. Threw mid 80s with a 66 mph breaking ball. Also catches with nice soft hands. Good receiver. Good "05" prospect.
