A month shy of his 13th birthday a young man touched 87 MPH in a youth tournament.
He’s also 6’4 and 200 lbs.
Check any player rankings through the ages of 14-16 and you’ll see players who are typically 3-4” and 20-30 lbs above the average size of their peers.
Nothing against this young man, or any player who physically matures faster than their peers, but if you are, take it with a grain of salt.
There are plenty of players out there who dominate the field with their size. It by no means guarantees a scholarship offer. Eventually the field catches up in physical maturity.
For those on the other side of the spectrum, “projectability” is an extremely valued term in the scouting world as recruiters and scouts envision what a player will become when they catch up physically. Undersized, yet skilled teen players always gain attention.
Regardless of what side of the the scale you’re currently on, skill development will always be the key that separates the pretenders from the contenders.
