VU Commit Nolan Watson Picked by Royals

Watson picked #33.

Nolan Watson

Nolan Watson, RHP, Indianapolis, IN

6'2" 200lbs
Perfect Game 3rd Team All-American
#56 on the Baseball America Top 100 draft prospects list (college and HS)

Watson has a repeatable delivery, and shows good athleticism. Pitching-wise, he reminds me a little of T.J. Pecoraro before his arm surgeries. He sits in the low 90s (PG recorded him at 92mph) and has a good slider.

Chances he's coming to campus: Low/Average. If Watson is taken in the first 2 rounds, Corbs will have a hell of a time convincing him to honor his commitment. If his Vanderbilt commitment scares teams off, he could be a good one for us.
