LATEST PG SHOWCASE REPORT
2020 PG Class of 2023 All American Games  
Brayden Buchanan is a 2023 C/RHP with a 6-1 194 lb. frame from Austin, TX who attends Vandegrift. Large frame with a physically mature build showing strength throughout the frame. Ran a 7.32 second sixty yard dash. Primary Catcher, high saddle while flexible in the legs. Feel for the glove as he receives it with soft hands. Quick transfers on throw downs as he releases downhill. Accurate to the bag while recording a 1.87 second pop time. Secondary Right-Handed Pitcher, working with a side step to a higher leg lift. Balanced throughout as he works into a loose, full arm action. Released from a high three-quarter slot as he stays on plane. Feel for the corners with the fastball as he ran it up to 87 mph. Curveball showing big depth with 11-to-5 movements that was a swing and miss type pitch. Did a nice job of mixing pitches and carved opposing hitters up. Right-Handed Hitter, starting spread out as he works into a lower leg lift to stride. Looks to drive the baseball middle-away. Proved to have some pop when he got extended. Outstanding Student. Verbal commit to Baylor. Named to '23 All American Games Top Prospect List.
