Alex Meyer is a 2008 RHP with a 6'7'', 200 lb. frame from Greensburg, IN who attends Greensburg HS. He has a very long, tall and loose build that hasn't come close to reaching physical maturity yet. Meyer throws from a low effort tall delivery that he repeats well and maintains good balance from. He arm stroke is clean and extremely fast; he has as much pure arm speed as any pitcher in the 2008 class and has excellent extension out front.. Meyer's fastball topped out at 95 mph and was rarely under 92 mph from a good downward plane. His breaking ball was an 80-81 mph slurve type slider that had some downward break to it. Meyer's delivery lacks deception and his slider isn't a swing/miss pitch at this point, so hitters got reasonably good cuts at him depsite his raw ability, but he has a first round type arm and could be throwing very hard by next year's draft. Scouts will certainly dream on him. Selected to 2007 Aflac All-American team.
