Erickson is a 5-11, 170 lb left handed pitcher from Florida He's one of the most successful high school level pitchers in the country pitching at the top level of Florida HS baseball. Erickson is slender of frame but is very athletic with lots of quick twitch muscles. He pitches from a low 3/4's release point with a quick, loose arm. His 84 mph fastball seems to explode on hitters at the last minute and Erickson uses his fastball aggressively. His best pitch is a 69 mph curveball that is nasty at times, with plus, plus biting action. He also mixes in a 76 mph change up. Erickson knows how to pitch and can consistently get hitters to swing and miss. He should be very successful at the college level and can pitch at pretty much any program in the country in our opinion. Erickson is a very good student as well.
