Hawtin Buchanan is a 2011 RHP/1B with a 6-8 240 lb. frame from Biloxi, MS who attends Biloxi HS. Extra large well proportioned build. Shows athleticism for size, flexible delivery, repeats well, high 3/4's release, plus downhill angle, pitches consistently low in the K zone. Consistent 90-91 mph fastball, throws FB inside aggressively, mostly straight but throws to spots. Tends to drop elbow on CB, flashes CB spin and depth when on top, slows on change up. Very similar to Anthony Ranaudo (LSU/Red Sox draft 2010) at the same age. Very good student, verbal commitment to Mississippi.
