LATEST PG SHOWCASE REPORT
2018 PG Top Prospect Games at Texas A&M  
Drake Varnado is a 2021 SS/RHP, OF with a 6-3 170 lb. frame from Port Neches, TX who attends Monsignor Kelly. Large, athletic frame with square shoulders and long limbs, excellent physical projection moving forward with room to fill. Primary shortstop, shows softness to hands out front and the ball and picks it well, athleticism to actions and charges well with balance, quick transfer out of glove and ball jumps out of hand on throws across. Also pitched, simple side step moving into delivery and gets tall on backside with leg lift just below belt; shows tempo and rhythm to delivery and a full and quick arm stroke through the back. Fastball topped out at 87 mph, ball comes out cleanly and shows running life to arm side. Remains on line towards the plate; mixed in both a curveball and changeup, will continue to refine release on changeup but keeps it down in the zone. Righthanded hitter, begins with a wide base and open stance with a high hand set and back elbow in the box; utilizes a leg lift trigger for timing in the box. Gets closed moving into contact, shows quickness to hands and creates extension out front. Occasionally gets to front side early, shows nice present bat speed and creates jump off the barrel. Easy, low effort swing and looks to lift at the point of contact with carry to pull side. Very good student. Named to Top Prospect List. Verbal commitment to South Carolina.
