Kenneth Burkhead is a 2012 RHP/OF with a 6-0 180 lb. frame from Deltona, FL who attends Deltona Trinity Christian Academy. Slender young look, some present strength. Slow paced delivery, bit open on landing, long loose arm action on fastball, 3/4's to high 3/4's release point depending on pitch. Fastball to 91 mph, maintains velo, lots of 91's, works down in zone well with FB, consistent run/sink. Tends to shorten arm action on CB/SL, lowers release on CB and tips, soft spin, showed good location/command of SL down and away from right handed hitters. Best command from the windup, some effort from stretch. Very good arm, needs to work on secondary pitches and consistent mechanics. Good student, signed with Florida State.
