Garrett "Hunter" Ruth is a 2017 RHP/OF with a 6-2 185 lb. frame from Gainesville, FL who attends F. W. Buchholz HS. Tall and lean young build, very projectable physically. Coming off a hamstring injury and only threw one inning and about 10 pitches. Creates lots of downhill angle from a high 3/4's arm action, longer arm action, fast paced delivery that he repeated very well. Fastball topped out at 94 mph, creates his velocity with little effort, threw only one slider and one change up. Will definitely need to be seen more over the summer, potential high ceiling talent. Excellent student, verbal commitment to South Carolina. Selected for the Perfect Game All-American Classic.
