Jake Burnette is a 2011 RHP with a 6-4 175 lb. frame from Buford, GA who attends Buford HS. Tall, slender build, very projectable. Simple repeatable delivery, straight arm take away, stays directional well, high 3/4's release. Mid to upper 80's fastball, good arm side running action, good feel for locating fastball, big breaking curveball, some sharp with very nice depth, occasional hard to control CB depth, tends to slow delivery on arm action. Projects well. Should continue to improve. Good student.
