2006 South Underclass Showcase  
Derek Willis is a 2008 OF/RHP with a 6'0'', 165 lb. frame from Glendale, AZ, who attends North Canyon HS. Willis has a tall, lean, and projectable frame. He has solid speed in the sixty and on the bases. Defensively he moves well to the ball in the outfield, and throws with a long arm action with solid arm strength. At the plate he is a right handed hitter who hits from a slightly closed to straight away stance with a slight crouch. He keeps his hands away from his body, and shows good bat speed, especially on the inside pitch. On the mound he throws from a 3/4 arm slot with a deceptive delivery. Willis has a short arm circle with solid arm speed. He throws across his body, but stays balanced. Willis gets arm side life on his fastball that topped out at 71 mph, and mixed in a slow curveball at 56 mph. He is an excellent student as well.
