Jake Thompson is a 2008 RHP with a 6'3'', 200 lb. frame from Cerritos, CA who attends Long Beach Wilson HS. He has an athletic and well proportioned build that can take on plenty more strength. Thompson throws hard with little effort and has the kind of leveraged, loose, smooth arm action you rarely see on a pitcher. His fastball was 88-92 mph and had late action down in the zone, sometimes sinking, sometimes cutting. Thompson's curveball was a plus pitch at times at 75 mph with very tight and late biting action and his change up showed the same type of quality and feel around the strike zone. Thompson can pitch and come at hitters with three potential plus pitches. He has a very high ceiling and if he bumps his fastball up a bit in the next year will get 1st round type consideration by some teams. Thompson is a live wire type personality who is into the game and plays emotionally. He is a good student who has a verbal to Long Beach State.
