Perfect Game notes
Right hander Chad Luensmann (2015, Altoona, Penn.) sat 88-90 mph but his fastball played up a couple ticks because of the sharp, late tailing life on it. His delivery has some funk to it and he backed his darting fastball with a sharp slider that he showed occasional feel for starting off in the low glove side corner to induce chases in the mid-70s. He also showed a slower breaking curveball with more depth in the upper-60s to low-70s and an occasional low-70s changeup. Luensmann allowed just an unearned run over five innings without issuing a walk, giving up only one hit and he struck out a pair, inducing nine of his 11 batted ball outs via the ground ball.

Talking about his dreams

From NineBaseball
Chad Leunsmann  (Rhp, Altoona, PA/Nebraska)  Leunsmann showcased added muscle from the summer showcase season as well at the MLK Pro.  Luensmann has a strong pitcher’s body with a large frame, broad shoulders, high waist and short torso leading to a strong lower half. His large frame offers projection and room to get stronger.  In his short bullpen session, Chad showed the heavy sink to his fastball and solid change that was his calling card in his breakout summer of 2014.
From Prep Baseball Report
 RHP Chad Luensmann (Bellwood-Antis HS, PA) flashed an 86-89 fastball with serious sink out of a three-quarter slot that he used to get a number of swings-and-misses and ground balls. The Nebraska recruit incorporates a high leg kick and has some funk in his delivery. The 6-foot-3, 210-pounder's slider lacked depth on this day, while his changeup had sink when down, but floated when elevated.
