Nash Blackley is a 2008 RHP/OF/1B with a 6'3'', 192 lb. frame from Bullock NC, who attends South Granville. Named to Top Prospect Team. Blackley has a taller lean build with a strong core. Blackley pithces from a high 3/4 arm slot with a long arm action. He has good arm speed and his arm works well. He has a loose arm and he pitches with effort. Blackley uses tall and fall style mechanics, and maintains good balance through his delivery. He pitches on a downhill plane and uses a deliberate leg kick at balance point. He has solid mechanics and has very good stuff at times. He throws a 12/6 curveball with solid depth to it. Blackley throws a heavy fastball with some sink to it. He gets hard armside run and sink on his change, which is his best pitch presently. At the plate, Blackley starts with a slightly open stance and generates bat speed. He has a quiet approach and can hit the ball to all fields. Blackley is a very good student and an interesting follow.
