Jason Groome is a 2016 LHP with a 6-6 180 lb. frame from Barnegat, NJ who attends IMG Academy. Very long and lean build, broad shoulders, beginnings of some present strength with plenty of room for more, super projectable. Clean well paced delivery, long and loose arm action, 3/4's arm slow, very easy and low effort coming through, big extension out front. Fastball to 95 mph, velocity comes easily and effortlessly, fastball pretty straight, throws strikes with his fastball and can spot it glove side, scary how hard he could throw with physical maturity. Mid to upper-70's curveball has good sweeping shape with tight spin and some bite, best when thrown at harder velocities. Developing change up, tends to slow arm at release but flashes good deception. Still 16 years old with years of physical development ahead of him but present stuff is already highest level. Number one prospect in the 2016 class at present. Verbal commitment to Vanderbilt.
