2016 Southeast Underclass Showcase  
Austin Branson is a 2018 RHP with a 5-10 160 lb. frame from Stone Mountain, GA who attends St Pius X Catholic High School. Medium, athletic frame with present strength to frame, strong lower half and has additional room still to fill. Primary righthanded pitcher, begins with a side step moving into delivery, leg lift up past belt with a hip turn at the top, measured tempo throughout with a short stride down the mound. Compact delivery and repeats it well, short arm action through the back and works to a three-quarters release point, able to generate short sinking life to fastball which topped out at 80 mph. Gets on top of fastball and is able to generate plane to fastball, tight release and projects with addtional lower half incorporated, flashes cut to fastball when down in the zone. Shows a nice feel for an 11-5 curveball and mixes it with intent, short bite to it with tight rotation and depth, occasional slider finish at 71 mph. Very good student.
