Perfect Game Profile

Jake Higginbotham is a 2015 LHP/1B with a 5-11 160 lb. frame from Cumming, GA who attends Buford HS. Medium, athletic frame with some present strength. 3/4 arm action, clean mechanics, easy velocity, balanced, finishes well, fast arm. Pounds the zone, pitches at 85-87 mph, throws a lot of strikes. Good feel for changeup with sinking action. High upside, interesting young arm with some polish. Also hits, short swing, good extension, has offensive tools to develop. Some two-way potential. Very good student. ~12/28/2012
