Jacob Nix is a 2014 RHP with a 6-3 200 lb. frame from Los Alamitos, CA who attends Los Alamitos HS. Very nice pitcher's build, tall and lean with good present strength. Simple repeatable pitching mechanics, medium arm circle, fast easy arm coming through, 3/4's arm slot, arm is loose and snappy out front, hard downhill plane, uses his lower half well. Steady low 90's fastball, topped out at 93 mph with heavy fastball life, pounded the bottom half of the strike zone and threw to both corners. Nice change up with sink and fade, good arm speed with deception. Still developing feel for curveball, low 70's with soft spin and short 11/5 shape. Only present issue is identifying the proper breaking ball; build, mechanics, fastball, change up and command are all elite prospect level. Verbal commitment to UCLA.
