Keyvius Sampson is a 2009 RHP/OF with a 6'1'', 185 lb. frame from Ocala, FL who attends Forest HS. Sampson is a very athletic RHP. He uses a 3/4 arm angle and a fast arm as his fastball works in the low nineties and topped out at 93 mph in the Metrodome. He stays online in his delivery and locates his fastball very well. He has more than just a fastball as he compliments his low 90's heat with good curveball with bite and also a change up. He projects well with his electric arm and athleticism and it wouldn't be surprising to see Keyvius in the upper 90s some day. He also shows ability at the plate and made solid line drive contact. One of the top 2009 arms. Aflac All American
