Was projected to go middle of the 1st round before his incidents.  Rated #10 among college prospects by Baseball America before the 2017 season.  Fastball in the low-mid 90's.  Led the nation in K's in 2017 before being suspended and kicked off the team.  Rated 5th best LHP and 27th best overall player in BA heading into the draft.
