LATEST PG SHOWCASE REPORT
2006 Southeast Top Prospect Showcase  
Will Smith is a 2007 LHP with a 6'4'', 215 lb. frame from Newnan GA, who attends North Gate HS. He has a big, athletic frame that is very strong now and could get even stronger with more work in the future. Smith has a low effort, smooth delivery and an extended mid 3/4's release point. He tended to get out of sync from the strength and push the ball with more effort. Smith's fastball ranged from 80 to 85 mph with good sink and run. His off speed pitches both showed very good quality and were his best offerings. His curveball was up to 73 mph and had good spin and bite to it. His 76 mph change up had good arm speed and life. Smith is a ground ball pitcher with three solid pitches and an idea how to use him. We keep waiting for his velocity to pick up but that just might now happen despite his big strong body.
